“Stay between the lines. The lines are our friends.”
Where did I first hear that cautionary phrase? Maybe it was that late summer morning in '61 starting kindergarten?
Today it's a refrain when training a skill: engage but watch the time. Learning should be more than watching out for boundaries. It should be like a cruise to somewhere. It could be.
Cue me. This is where I come in. I do instructional design. “I'm a cruise director for learning.” I reply when asked what I do. “I design learning experiences that get people moving and making.” It's a good conversation starter.
I'm in He's The Weird Teacher (TWTChat) book club on Voxer. Chapter 1 was about one educator's teaching philosophy. Being The Weird Instructional Designer I totally get where he's coming from. I'm going there, too.
