6 Podcasts For Instructional Designers

radio-34070_1280

Instructional design is one of those professions that requires you to synthesize a vast variety of skills. If I had to pick the top skills necessary to create excellent instructional content, they’d be:

  1. Leadership and management
  2. Knowledge of the science and psychology behind learning
  3. Visual design
  4. Writing and copy editing

It’s hard to keep on top of these skills, since each is a distinct skill with an entire industry / profession surrounding it. Podcasts can help keep your brain engaged in these skills in a spoon-feed kind of way – just my style.

Related to these topics, here are my clickable top picks for podcasts:

  1. Leadership and management
  2. Knowledge of the science and psychology of learning
  3. Visual design
  4. Writing and copy editing

It’s all very meta – I know. How do you learn about learning? So, your call to action: let me know your top picks for podcasts that help you with your job.
