Study Title:Essential Project Management Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities among Instructional Design Professionals: A Qualitative Study
Previous research on the instructional design (ID) field has not directly examined the project management role in the context of the PMI Project Management Body of Knowledge standards. With the proliferation of ID positions across industries, it is important for the ID field to examine this important gap in the research literature. The purpose of this study is to examine what project management knowledge, skills, and abilities instructional designers from various industries who have served in a project management capacity actually need for their jobs.
If you are an instructional designer or educational technology professional with a title of “Project Manager”, or if you have experience serving in a project manager role regardless of formal title, you are invited to participate in a research study conducted by James Kline, a doctoral student in Educational Technology at the University of Florida. If you choose to participate, you will take a short 3-5 minute pre-selection survey. If you are selected for our actual study, we will contact you at the email you provide for a 45-60 minute follow-up interview about your instructional design and project management experience.
Dear AECT Member,
