Episode Summary:

If you ask one ID what they do at their job, it may seem wildly different from the responsibilities of an ID at another job. Some of that might be due to the needs of the organization. This episode details the different types of Instructional design jobs you may encounter in your job search. This will help you identify the most common ways to differentiate between the tasks that instructional designers perform.
