Survey: Instructional Designers 'Pivotal' in Tech Adoption - Dian Schaffhauser, Campus Technology

Managing projects is the most common task instructional designers undertake during their days, followed by technology and pedagogical training. Their biggest obstacle to success on the job is faculty resistance. The most important expertise they possess as a whole is the ability to learn new technologies, followed by project management and learning science or theory. Their favorite tools to work with are Camtasia and Adobe products; their least-favorite are Blackboard and learning management systems in general. Those are some of the findings that have come out of a new survey undertaken by Intentional Futures, a self-described "strategy and design studio," undertaken on behalf of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's "Next Generation Courseware Challenge."
