I am ridiculously excited to share with you today’s episode with my new friend, Ali Siddiqui. This episode has it all! We talked about his transition from being a chemistry teacher to being an award-winning instructional designer and he’s worked on projects for ASU, NASA, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. We also talked about everything you need to know about project-based learning and how to apply this strategy to your courses and trainings. We also talked about finding the right job opportunity, universal design for learning, and more.

What we talked about:
