If you are an instructional designer (ID), you already know that your job requires you to wear many “hats” to be effective. Some of these hats, such as “design guru” and “program manager” are familiar to most IDs and well documented in the learning community.

Two for consideration are “choreographer” and “marriage counselor.” To find out about the other three, you’ll have to join the session!
