    S3E1: Janet Lee and Darlesa Cahoon are analyzing instructional design

    In this episode I interview Janet Lee who works in higher education and Darlesa Cahoon who works in the corporate sector. We explore how instructional design is the same and how it is different across the different contexts. Sometimes we think it will be completely different only to discover that it is actually quite alike. 
    This is the first part of a series.
