'There are thousands of well-educated and highly-qualified landscape designers in this country but only a fraction of them make a decent living. For too long, this talented community has placed its artistry above charging fairly for its services. It is time to figure out a better, fairer way.' Chapter one This hands-on book discusses all the elements of Catherine Wiersema's top rated, semester-long, professional practice course for landscape designers, taught at Radcliffe/Harvard's Landscape Institute and the Boston Architectural Center over the past 15 years. Richly illustrated with lessons learned and war stories from her own and others' practical experiences, the book is a step-by-step guide to building a profitable, client-focused business. Both early-career and advanced landscape designers and landscape architects will find much of value to help them target the best clients, promote and price their services, and above all, manage the multiple phases of happy client relationships. About the Author: This book is the culmination of Catherine's career as landscape designer and educator. For many years, her sought-after design/build practice - Boussard Garden Design - focused on large residential properties. With her professional practice course she addressed a big void in the curriculum for landscape designers - how to build a profitable business. She is a recipient of the Harvard Landscape Institute's Distinguished Faculty award and has been an acclaimed lecturer at numerous conferences including those of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers. Catherine is a graduate of Radcliffe's Program in Landscape Design, is APLD-certified, and holds an MBA. Her earlier career was in marketing/sales in the corporate world and as associate professor of marketing and strategy.


Instructional Designer Competencies

RRP $262.99

This book provides the most current and complete version of statements defining a competent instructional designer, for those who are or aspire to practice in virtually any context, anywhere in the world. The research conducted to update and validate these standards included obtaining feedback from over 1000 senior to novice practitioners and scholars working in the North, South, and Central Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and African nations.

This book is intended for those who hire, train, and prepare instructional designers and those who work (or plan to work) as instructional designers. It provides an updated description of the profession. It lays out the most critical competencies (e.g., knowledge, skills, and attitudes) of the successful instructional designer, regardless of the context in which they work (e.g., K-12, higher education, business and industry, government and military, private consultancy, informal or formal), the location in which they practice (e.g., the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia), and the type of delivery for which they design (e.g., face-to-face, paper-based, digital, blended).

There have always been questions about what instructional designers do...such questions led to the creation of ibstpi more than 30 years ago. Yet, this questioning is especially true today with the growing call for developers of e-learning and other technology-supported instruction. The term 'instructional designer' seems to have become a generic phrase that now lends itself to a broad range of meanings, and yet, it is a definitive profession with a specific scope and focus. The more widely the label 'instructional designer' is used, the more room there is for misunderstanding about what is called for in skills, behaviours, competencies, and outputs. What is called for in the midst of this learning boom is clarity, direction and uniform expectations. With a common understanding, we can help avert poor design, especially in e-learning and technology-supported instruction, which often fails learners or has high attrition rates.

Grounded on rigorous research, consulting hundreds of practitioners around the world, this book articulates and explains what is required to be a competent instructional designer. It includes the set of standards that clarifies the profession and provides a set of competencies for creating hiring schemes, professional development guidelines, performance assessments, work plans, and curriculum to prepare instructional designers.The instructional designer profession continues to grow in wake of emerging technologies, new pedagogies, and virtual learning environments.

However, many educators, instructors, and even training specialists often lack the competencies to design, develop, implement, and evaluate these newer types of instructional solutions. This book articulates and explains the competencies that are required to be a competent instructional designer.
