    Instructional Design is one of the most lucrative opportunities you'll find.  If you're already an ID, you may have noticed that the market has become saturated. With this influx of competition, how do you set yourself apart from everyone else?  For over 20 years, Chanta has worked as a freelancer, a contractor, and a full-time employee for Fortune 100 companies.  She will show you how to communicate your value (whether to external clients or to internal customers), how to manage your career as a business, how to negotiate the salary you want, and how to showcase your skills as a badass designer.

    In this fast and furious session, we'll cover:

    • Your skills
    • Your brand
    • Your tools
    • Your money
    • Your health

    Get prepared to learn everything you've always wanted to know about proving your worth as an instructional designer - and even some stuff you didn't!

    This course is for intermediate to advanced learners.  One lucky participant will receive an advance copy of How to Be a Badass Instructional Designer by Chanta Rand.
