Instructional Designer

The Challenge:

Do you want to develop training that will transform national security? 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 information 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 of national security by crafting effective training.

On our team, you’ll work with SMEs, instructors, graphic artists, etc., to capture your customer’s training needs and recommend the right learning solution to help them accomplish their mission.  Putting the learner at the center of the training experience, you’ll design synchronous, asynchronous material, and performance support tools.  You’ll build training material with multimedia specialists, graphic artists, instructors, etc., 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 use cutting-edge multimedia technologies and strategies, including blended learning, screencasting, gamification, etc. to build a successful learning environment. You know communication is key, so you’ll meet with SMEs, instructors, product designers, etc. 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 the training for maximum impact. We focus on growing as a team to make the best solutions for our customers, so you’ll learn new tools and skills to develop a creative learning experience that will engage students. Join us as we improve national security through learner-centered instructional design.
