Someone got to my blog the other day by searching on “what’s the difference between learning designers and instructional designers?”
In my last job, I was the Manager of Instructional Design. Now I’m the VP of Learning Design.
Did I make the leap because I work for the UK mothership – and that’s what they call it across the pond?
Are we – as in the collective we of the eLearning ‘industry’ – making a conscious shift away from Instructional Designer since no one on the outside knows what that means?
Is Learning Designer more descriptive? Is it more all encompassing? Am I now thinking about learning solutions – all the myriad ways to help someone actually learn – not just how to feed someone up with a little instructional tidbit?
Is this a general trend or just me?
What do you think??
