When ATD and i4cp collaborated for the 2010 report, Instructional Systems Design: Today and in the Future, the main focus was instability in organizational learning, complicated by ongoing technological advances and globalization. Today, those factors still exist, however, the new research indicates that ID professionals must become faster, more strategic, global, and tech-savvy. The research also indicates that buy-in from senior leaders has remained low due to the lack of competencies, which has led to low funding.
Key findings from the Instructional Design Now: A New Age of Learning and Beyond include:
- Instructional design projects are more likely to support organizational business goals than learning goals.
- Designers view formal ID education as an important career component.
- Traditional classroom instruction is in use by more than 92 percent of organizations.
- Social and mobile learning still are not widely used.
