I am Shawntay Skjoldager, a Trainologist who transitioned from burned out and broke teacher to instructional designer & eLearning developer to founder of The Instructional Design Company. I am passionate about helping career changers teachers, and new grads interested in instructional design & eLearning make the transition...just like I did. 

Before I Tell You All About This Life-Changing Accelerated ID System, 
Let's Talk About Who This Is Really For...

The Instructional Design & Tech Accelerator System is for ambitious career changers with no shortage of commitment who are tired of feeling burned out, working in jobs with little or no appreciation, trading dollars for unhappiness or worse, misery, and are ready to make a life-changing transformation into a meaningful career that can bring joy, opportunity, growth, and set you up to live your best life!

Teacher or a Professor?

Are you a teacher or a professor who is ready to leave the classroom for a career that has better pay and more advancement opportunities? Are you tired of grading papers or being overworked and underpaid? Do you want to transfer your existing skills to a new career in instructional design?

New Grad or New Hire?

Are you a new grad or did you just get hired in your first instructional design job? Not sure you are prepared to excel in instructional design? Are you looking for real-world, hands-on practice because you don't feel confident in your skills or abilities? Do you want to eliminate imposter syndrome and boost your confidence?

Want More Career Options?

Are you interested in pursuing a career that gives you more options? Wouldn't it be great if you could work as a corporate instructional designer and earn higher wages or work as a HigherEd ID and take advantage of academic benefits or work as a freelancer to earn extra income?

Krista says, "The Program is a great value and the community is priceless."

Lee R. 
Teacher Transitioning into Instructional Design

I am genuinely grateful for this course. I wanted a real-world perspective and feel like I got it. I’m teaching now, but nearing retirement age but can see myself working as an instructional designer well into my retirement years. My other goal is to take as many courses in statistics as possible in hopes of bringing some mathematical precision to the ROI question. Like you say, getting accurate metrics to measure ROI can be a challenge, but I intend to work on that part. That’s unimportant right now, what is important is the fact that I feel like this course was well worth every penny I spent and I would to it again in a heartbeat. I have too much going on right now, but as soon as I get some time freed up I intend to take your course in project management.

Sarah Smith
Freelance Instructional Designer

My teacher-to-instructional-designer journey began two years ago when I left my teaching comfort zone and started my first freelance ID job. Now, I’m stepping out of the classroom and taking my freelance work full-time, so I’m thrilled to be joining the Tech Accelerator program. Adding technologies like Articulate 360 and Adobe Premiere Pro to my qualifications will help me take my courses to the next level and attract more clients! 

Brian Hightower
Instructional Designer Training Facilitator

Shawntay is an amazing individual. She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of ID and eLearning. She is also very compassionate and loves to help and see everyone around her grow and prosper. Shawntay has been a great mentor to me and she has helped me mature as an instructional designer and eLearning developer. She has provided me with opportunities when others have overlooked me. I am very grateful to have met and built a lifelong relationship with Shawntay.

Shawnice Edge
Instructional Designer

This program is one of the most robust yet fulfilling L&D programs I've seen. I learned so much about the industry and about the limitlessness of my own capabilities. I am so appreciative of Shawntay and all of the trainers who took part in the program. They went above and beyond with not only guiding, but communicating live and working one on one or in small groups. If you are on the fence, I say take the leap and you will not regret it! There's so much to learn, not only from the trainers, but also the learners in your group. Everyone comes in with their own skills and can be additional support and guidance for you. Thank you for creating this program!

Darlene Dalgleish
Freelance Instructional Designer

I'd highly recommend the Instructional Design & Tech Accelerator Certificate Program. I'm blown away by how much I learned in just 12 weeks. I had ID experience prior to taking this course and was just looking to get a better understanding of applying adult learning principles. This course well exceeded my expectations! Not only did I gain a clear understanding of adult learning principles, I was also able to apply those principles by creating assets for your portfolio using PowerPoint, Adobe Premiere Pro and Storyline. The hands on support that we received was top notch.

Dr. Jennifer Morrison

This program has been INCREDIBLE! I have enjoyed the short and informative lectures, which is something I intend to do it my own classes, as well as the triads for accountability. My group has a What's App chat that is ongoing all the time and will last long after the course is over. The weekly meetings gave us a chance to see what was going on, and some allowed us to find out how it REALLY is from people in the ID field. I am not finished yet, but I have learned so much to use in my regular online courses. I would encourage people interested in ID or online instructors interested in giving their courses a little more umph!

Krista Johnson Awomoyi
Instructional Designer

I can't say enough great things about the Instructional Design & Tech Accelerator Certificate Program! The length of the program is perfect; it doesn't feel rushed and there's just the right amount of structure to give you the accountability you need. There are so many opportunities to get live answers to any questions you have related to the course content or anything ID-related! This program gave me the support and structure I needed to both feel affirmed in the relevant skills I already had coming in and to fill in the gaps I had as a career-changer going into ID. Shawntay, Katie, and all the coaches are super helpful and supportive. I now feel confident that I have the tools and access to resources I need to apply for ID jobs without wondering if there's something I'm "missing" in the preparation process. I'd highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to transition into ID or who just wants to brush up on their skills in the field.

Aviva Berkowitz
 Instructional Designer

I am really enjoying this program! It's prerfect for someone who is thinking about a career shift to Instructional Design and does not have a lot of experience. This is my first real introduction to Instructional Design and it's been the perfect beginner course to help me get my feet wet. The modules are broken down well and it's great to go at your own pace and at your own time. The modules themselves are very comprehensive and you learn a lot from all of them. I really like how each one build upon each other and you're working towards the bigger project of designing your first training course from scratch. I'm learning so much from going through this course! I was provided great feedback from Katie and Shawntay through the process via Trello Boards, comments on the Google documents, and Facebook group. This course has been well worth the time and effort and I appreciate the fact that I will always have the resources available to me after I complete the training (just in case I'm not quite ready to transition yet).

Shanna Howe
Future Instructional Designer

If you have any interest in ID, sign up for this program NOW! Shawntay and her team are top notch! The course content exceeded my expectations in a big way and the encouragement and support continues to be so valuable. You will not feel alone going through this course, you will learn so much, you’ll have many cheerleaders, and you will have fun!

Gabby Girmaldo
L&D Project Manager

The Instructional Design & Tech Accelerator certificate program is one of the most comprehensive ID programs out there for beginners. If you're looking to grow your schools in ID and development then I highly recommend this program. Not only will this program give you an overview of theory, but you will receive a thorough walkthrough of how to apply what you have learned. Although I had already secured a position in Learning & Development when I bought this course, it helped me to move up into a new position as a Learning & Development Project Manager!

Wendy McMillian
Teacher, Future Instructional Designer

I have searched for the last few years to find some suitable career change where I wouldn't have to earn another degree and where I could use the talents and skills I already have as a teacher. When I came across the Instructional Design Accelerator course, I loved the fact that Shawntay was a former teacher and could relate to a teacher's need to transition from the classroom. This was what sold the course for me. Her experiences are invaluable especially when translating teacher duties to instructional designer duties. I would (and have) recommended this program to other teachers I know who are looking to transition out of the classroom. I do appreciate ALL of her feedback on my projects!

Laurie Henderson
Teacher, Future Instructional Designer

I love how this course let's you work at your own pace. I got great tips and learned many things. The ongoing support for multiple people and groups is what I love the best. You are never alone in this process. I have been able to adjust my resume and began creating a portfolio of work I've completed to add when applying for jobs. I use many of the PowerPoint skills in my lessons and trainings. I would highly recommend this for anyone wanting to become an instructional designer.
