Top 2 things you do when working with Subject Matter Experts
I'm pretty new to ID and I've been struggling with my current SMEs on a recent e-learning build. So I'm being brave and asking you guys (ie experienced course developers) to share your experience. What are your 2 top tips on how you build and manage the SME/ID relationship? I will compile the answers into a blog or document and share it coz I figure it will be a good resource for other beginner Instructional Designers.
I've just downloaded 'The Essential Guide to Working with SMEs" so I shall go and make a cup of tea and have a read. I suspect however that there's nothing like my not-so-great experience to shift me up a notch for my next project. Mostly the problem is I don't know what I don't know ... though I'm finding out pretty quickly!
