I am practicing the profession of Instructional Design again. While at Colorado Tech and Wayne State I designed many courses and helped others with instructional strategies and resources. Now I am called an Instructional Systems Specialist (ISS). Many will recognize that as a military or government term and they would be correct. After populating the academic world for so long, it is a change. The audiences are different, the choices of delivery are different as is the content. All that is good. The military (John Gagne) was an early adapter to instructional design. Despite that there are many mountains to climb.
