Instructional Systems Designer, Senior

The Challenge:

Do you want to develop training that will transform healthcare? As an instructional designer, you know that even the best tools and processes can't have impact without the right training. Constructing an interactive course that teaches critical skills requires a real passion for understanding the needs of your customer. We have an opportunity for an instructional designer who is committed to solving some of the toughest challenges in healthcare by crafting effective training.

On our team, you'll work with a team of instructional designers and subject matter experts (SMEs) to capture your customer's training needs and advise them on the right learning solution to help them accomplish their objective. Putting the learner at the center of the training experience, you'll design synchronous, asynchronous material, or performance support tools. You'll build training material with SMEs, multimedia specialists, graphics artists, and instructors following the ADDIE model. You'll use your technical skills, creativity, and experience to come up with new ideas to develop an engaging, interactive learning experience on screen or in a classroom. You'll recommend cutting-edge multimedia technologies and strategies, including blended learning to build a successful learning environment. You know communication is key, so you'll meet with internal and client SMEs throughout the process to discuss learning material and incorporate feedback. To ensure your solution is hitting the mark, you'll collect and analyze results using evaluation methodologies such as the Kirkpatrick Model, then fine tune your training for maximum impact. You'll be able to build your leadership skills as you share your expertise through leadership and mentoring. You'll identify new opportunities to build solutions to your customer's learning needs. This is a chance to use your deep understanding of training methodologies to build a creative learning experience that will engage students. Join us as we improve healthcare through learner-centered instructional design.

Empower change with us.
