Careers in Instructional Technology Management are wide open and the field is exploding with opportunities. A decade ago no one would have had the description “Senior Blog Master” or “Director of Social Media” as a job description, but today things have changed. We will discuss the pitfalls and opportunities with a panel of experts from a variety of different organizations, institutions, and businesses (academic, business, and independent). This is your opportunity to gain insight and ask questions to people who are already in the field. Interested in changing jobs or starting a new career? This panel discussion is for you.
