Who would have made a GREAT Instructional Designer, and why?
OK, just a fun thread here, to try and knock the braincells together, and introduce some other perspectives to classic "learning" and instructional design.
Who, from history, or outside our particular field of creativity would have made a great Instructional Designer, and why?
I will start the ball rolling with Walt Disney. My explanation can be seen explained in more depth in blogland (http://wp.me/p13NYZ-2p) , but basically, he was a master of the techniques needed to communicate in-depth content with minimal, but beautifully-crafted words and maximum visual "punch".
He dreamed "how it should look and feel", and made it happen. A lesson for us all perhaps.
