We often forget that creating a training event is only one part of the process. Just because you build it does not mean anyone in the business will hear about it, or want to engage.

Instructional Designers and eLearning developers play an important role in DEI programs.

As instructional designers, we're often working on projects related to very specific processes. We want to be clear, precise, and concise, in training that process.

Learning is often seen as a solo endeavor. But in reality our learning requires input from others. Sometimes that input comes from an instructor, and sometimes from your peers.
