Surviving Course Development Wars

A nice, needed, discussion about the challenges of subject matter experts and instructional designers working together: Surviving Course Development Wars. It’s like trying to bring two different cultures and languages together, and then trying to get them to “play well”…without equipping either for the experience.

    I’m reposting this article from Xplana by Susan Smith Nash that I first noticed in the elearnspace blog.

    Thank you for the comments & the positive reinforcement — you can’t imagine how nervous I was about even writing about this subject!! You’re so right– it’s a clash of cultures, and the both sides go “cornered rat” in an instant!! It would be wonderful for others to share their experiences — all names changed to protect the innocent, of course!!
