To design instruction is to use specific tools to develop an educational or training plan.  This plan can develop into a small project or a full course.  The process requires some formal training to be successful.  Once the ADDIE model or similar model is understood, the process of designing instruction progresses faster.  To work as an instructional designer, a background in technology, education, or information science would be helpful.  Advanced coursework in instructional design would also be a desired qualification.
