  1. Three Instructional Design Ninja Differences

     Instructional Design Ninja Differences

    I am not your typical instructional designer. I don’t spend my time formatting slides in PowerPoint and programming e-learning in Storyline to crank out pretty courses. (I work with a team that does that part.) Rather, I help you design training that works.

    • What else in addition to training needs to be addressed to get results?
    • What is

  10. Why Content Isn’t Training

    BalletI love ballet. So much so that I take ballet class three to four times a week. Because I live in San Francisco, the school I attend is able to attract top-tier teachers. This means that I often find myself dancing side-by-side with principal ballerinas from San Francisco Ballet. This is a little like finding yourself singing with Lady Gaga or acting alongside Meryl Streep.

    Here’s the thing that I’ve … Read More
