[AECT] Webinar 6/29, 12pm (EST) – Shifting Paradigms: Instructional Designers as Change Agents

Note this event later today…

Shifting Paradigms from the Inside Out: Instructional Designers as Change Agents

Please join the Systems Thinking and Change Division on June 29, 2016 at 12:00 PM EST in a webinar that will discuss “Shifting Paradigms from the Inside Out: Instructional Designers as Change Agents” with Julaine Fowlin, Ph.D., Auburn University and Monica Sulecio de Alvarez, M.Ed., Distance Learning Experience Consultant.

A learning system is influenced by so many other factors which often requires a paradigm shift. Thus as learning and performance improvement professionals we have to be prepared to be change agents as well, and adapt the formal theoretical frameworks and strategies to fit the institution’s particular process and culture. This requires us to be patient and sensitive to the institution’s cultural nuances and decide on what theoretical approaches to insist on and when to let the institution organically formulate the method that works best for their system.

The webinar will address the increased need for instructional designers to be change agents. The presenters will share insights on approaches to navigating the complexity of implementing learning and performance interventions that generate paradigm shifts.
