Welcome back to <<Play the Podcast Please>>! This is officially the second post, and it’s almost 1 AM but I got excited once I found this podcast (after listening to ~2 episodes, but I think I hit the jackpot!). It’s:
Dear Instructional Designer
Hosted by Kristen Anthony
This is a great resource for ID newbies and those who might be interested in the field (as I believe it’s tailored towards this beginner audience). In fact, the tagline is “the show about the instructional design journey,” and while it includes various topics in Instructional Design, what I love most about this podcast…what captured me right away…is the interviews! That’s right, she interviews people in the field, asking questions including how they got into ID, what their life is like, etc., so it’s great insight listening to other people’s journeys and experiences. Not only is it very interesting, there’s a wealth of knowledge that may be helpful in getting a better idea on the career as an IDer and you can secretly judge and wonder if being an IDer is right for you!
Podcasts are great. I love it because I can download the shit out of them and listen later even when I go somewhere without wi-fi. Podcasts are also one way to get information. Today’s << Play the Podcast Please >> recommendation is actually a recommendation by one my professors in a class last semester. It’s…
Trends & Issues in Instructional Design, Educational Technology, and Learning Sciences
Hosted by Abbie Brown and Tim Greene
First, I want to say, if you are interested in learning more about Instructional Design, it’s a good idea to start exploring some of the trends and issues in the field as well. Get a feel for what’s happening, see what floats your boat, etc.
In each episode, Professors Abbie Brown and Tim Greene talk about the trends and issues in Instructional Design, Educational Technology, and Learning Sciences they have observed, and also suggest some recommended readings (links to readings can be found on their blog). The show is quite interesting and is a perfect way to learn more about the field in bite-size pieces!
