Looking for peeps…
I’ve been contacted by someone who wants to create a “living document style guide that includes effective best practices for instructional design standards.” He wants to know what components go into a style guide. It’s his first attempt at a style guide and so far he tells me, “it’s about spelling, grammar, and minor style standards.”He wants something comprehensive but I doesn’t know for sure what that looks like. “What components go into a style guide (typically)?”
So… the problem he wants to address is to have consistentcy among the designers when creating or updating training materials/content. His group of three designs their our own in-house facilitator guides, participant guides, handouts, posters and other supplemental resources.
My problem-o? Zero bandwidth. I just can’t find the time to put something together…can you help? If you’ve got stuff on your blog, just pass along the link. I’ll pass it on.
I’ve pointed him to Cathy Moore’s blueprints as a good place to start. What else?
