Inspired Instructional Design: Learning from the Imagination of Jim Henson
Jim Henson started working as a puppeteer in 1954, long before most people considered corporate instructional design as a career. Yet, Jim Henson applied many of the core ideas from instructional design and design thinking in his imaginative work.
We will cover Hensons use of design thinking and ID concepts, such as storyboarding, storytelling, iteration, empathy, audience analysis, and more. Well bring his applications back to practical application in our daily work. Well get creative, discussing how construction of a Muppet can translate to construction of a course.
Also, this session is fun, and includes singing and a guest appearance by Sid, the Muppet.
