Ellen Wagner relates a presentation on the Secret Handshakes of Instructional Design "based on various blog posts I have written on this topic, as well as an essay published in the inaugural issue of the Journal of Applied Instructional Design." Here are the slides. The point of the presentation is that in order for change to happen, everybody involved in instructional design (ID) needs to work together - hence the need to be able to recognize each other (with secret handshakes). "When you get right down to it, perhaps the most notable secret handshake all IDs share is the passion for finding solutions that make the world a better place for learning."
