What do instructional designers need to know and understand right now. How have things improved and changed or stayed the same? This episode with Cammy Bean answers many of these questions. Cammy updated one of the most well-known books in our field and there is now a second edition, The Accidental Instructional Designer, Second Edition.
She provides a big picture view of where and how learning and development fits into an organization. We discuss industry changes over the past decade and what never seems to change.
Cammy is a senior solutions consultant at Kineo, leading sales and account management for Kineo’s US portfolio of custom learning clients. She’s been in the industry for more than 25 years.
