The question was "Instructional Designers: do you have an advanced degree in ID?"
I make no claims for the scientific validity of my research, but I think there are some interesting results...
- 61.8% of respondents do not have an advanced degree
- 58% of respondents work in corporate ID
(Any correlation there?)
I think this one tells an interesting story ("How long have you been working as an Instructional Designer?":
Where do all the IDs go over time? Are they just not sticking with the field and moving elsewhere? Or is this showing an increase in the need for IDs?
I love scrolling the list of people's degrees -- it's heavily weighted to the liberal arts, with a little bit of everything from ethnography to criminal justice. We're a diverse bunch.
