Being a newbie in an industry can be challenging, no matter if you are a new instructional designer (ID), developer or team lead/manager. I’ve got a glass of iced lemon water today (it’s still pretty hot here) and it’s so refreshing! What’s in your cup? I’m really excited to share this conversation with Tim and I really hope you find as much value in this conversation as I did.
