The Scenario Secrets Podcast explores this question:
How are instructional designers like us, who can’t sit back and accept the status quo, who are striving to realize our own creative potential, how do we work in a way that lets us truly create and contribute and make an impact that we can be proud of,.... while… at the same time, fall in love with the process?

Hi, my name is Anna Sabramowicz. I'm an instructional designer and coach. This podcast is my journey. Join me as I reflect on my work, my student’s work, engage in experiments and draw lessons from conversations with experts.

    Everything is Figure-Outable | Interview with Dr. Robin Sargent

    Everything is Figure-Outable | Interview with Dr. Robin Sargent

    THE SCENARIO SECRETS PODCAST
    When you first meet Dr. Robin Sargent she might intimidate you... I mean she's so well put together, she's direct, and there's this aura of confidence about her. Then she somehow disarms you with that contagious laugh of hers and you feel completely at ease. 

    Robin is a successful entrepreneur, instructional designer and mom of three boys. I loved digging into her journey, because I think the lessons from how she approaches life are spectacular and valuable for both men and women. 
    In this interview we talked about perseverance, investing in yourself, academia vs. corporate, her work and much much more... hope you enjoy and share.

    There's something really strategic in the "happily ever after" line at the end of a good fairy tale. But we, as learning designers can leverage this strategy to bring our interactive story to a satisfying closure and sell our audience on a future that could be theirs. Listen along with me :)
