My name is Shawntay Skjoldager, a Trainologist and an Instructional Designer. I understand what it takes to become an ID -- without having a related degree in the field
I'm a former 5th Grade Teacher who successfully transitioned to an Instructional Designer and now Agency Owner by simply learning to apply my classroom skills to the corporate world.
If you already know how to teach and build learning plans, then you're already on the path to becoming an ID.
There are tons of free and paid resources here to help you on your journey!
Good luck! And yes, you can really become an Instructional Designer.
