Dr. Luke Hobson is a senior instructional designer, a program manager at MIT X Pro, an instructor for the University of Miami School of Education and Human Development, and the founder of instructional design institute. He is the author of the book, "What I Wish I Knew Before Becoming an Instructional Designer." Dr. Hobson first learned about instructional design in 2013 and became an instructional designer in 2015.

Dr. Hobson considers project management aspects and organization to be important daily activities for an instructional designer's success.

He attributes his success to his refusal to quit and his determination to prove doubters wrong.

He also discusses his experience with using Chat GPT to bounce ideas off of and receive feedback.
