gijdgihaWhere to find your IDL SIG colleagues at the #STC16 Summit (pdf) Hello, I am happy to communicate with you ahead of the STC 2016 Summit next month, where I hope Robert Hershenow and I can meet you in person (if we haven’t before). We are the co-managers of the Instructional Design and Learning SIG, and sometimes it’s lonely volunteering for a virtual community such as the SIG. We do have this one opportunity each year to meet our members and we really look forward to it. Attend our IDL SIG Business Breakfast on Wednesday, May 18th at 7 am Pacific in the Marquis Ballroom of the Anaheim Marriott. Join us for breakfast and an entertaining, informative State-of-the-SIG discussion! Open to all IDL SIG members. Wear your Disney swag to be eligible for door prizes. Here is a quick overview of where you can find us, how you will recognize us, and ways to network with us – and each other, of course. 2016 Summit Email to Members You know, if you haven’t registered for the Summit yet… there is still time.

2014-2015 IDL Scholarships Awards Announced

IDL SIG’s 2014-2015 Scholarship Winners

The IDL SIG awards scholarships each year to assist students who are pursuing a graduate degree  in a field related to Instructional Design. Students applying for this scholarship are expected to be able to demonstrate their focus on topics related to Instructional Design through their academic studies, current jobs, and graduate or special projects. The Scholarship Committee recently evaluated several applicants’ academic records and potential for contributing to the Instructional Design profession, and selected two deserving winners:
  • Elizabeth J. Allen, who is enrolled in a Master’s degree in the Instructional Design program of the Learning Technologies Department at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA.
  • Kyung Kim, who is pursuing a PhD in the Learning, Design, and Technology program in the Learning and Performance Systems Department of Pennsylvania State University.
Elizabeth’s background is in business and higher education. Her passion is to understand adult cognition and how modern technological tools can support deep learning. As Program Director of Literacy NJ, Gloucester County, Elizabeth uses instructional design to study and enhance our adult literacy student curricula and digital tools in an effort to address the workforce development and literacy needs of the region. Kyung’s background has covered being a high school teacher, an educational technology journalist, and an instructional designer in Korea. He also worked as a researcher at the Global Teacher’s Institution. In America, he was the recipient of the Outstanding Graduate Student Research Award from the Northwestern State University. His goal is to make education possible, available, and better for all learners through the design of effective learning environments and technology. Congratulations to both winners, and thank you to the other applicants for your efforts. All of the submissions were fascinating to read and judging was challenging. Watch for an article by each winner in an upcoming issue of IDeaL, the IDL-SIG award-winning newsletter. Also, please bookmark this page, watch for announcements, and return here early in 2016 when the 2016 scholarship competition will re-open. Application forms and other documentation requirements will be posted then. In the meantime, please read our Scholarship FAQs.
