Abstract: Like an architectural designer's job is to work with clients to create order out of dissimilar pieces of a building, an Instructional Designer's (ID) job is to work with faculty to create order in a learning environment. Like an architect, the ID has to balance different requirements for each project, potentially taking on different roles depending on the environment and the type of project. ID faces a variety of challenges and pressures as they seek to create order in the environment in which they. In this best practice session we will share as a group ID challenges. Then we will categorize and discuss as a group these pressures and look at methods/technique to reframe, deconflict and/or tackle even the most stressful of problems.
