Product Development & Instructional Design

The key to both product development and effective instructional design is to create from the perspective of the users. What pain points are you resolving through your program? How will they use their skills after the course? What is the best way to transfer the knowledge? (Hint: It´s almost never showing a series of videos.) I work with clients to define their stakeholders' pain points, translate that into a proposed learning experience, create protoypes, test, adjust, and scale, always with the end-user as the core of the process.
