Skills for corporate Instructional Designers

I’m thinking about changing careers to Instructional Design / Development. As part of my thought process, I wondered what the currently preferred software package is, so I asked a question in the Instructional Design group on Facebook.

One response included a set of skills that corporate IDs should know – I wanted to save that set here:

  • consulting
  • storyboarding
  • adult learning theory
  • analysis methods
  • engagement
  • evaluation methods
  • graphic design
  • LMS knowledge

I’m sure I’ll find more in the future.
