The Instructional Design (ID) team provides training on instructional technology tools such as Canvas, Panopto, Zoom, and other collaborative learning tools. We also offer additional professional development opportunities for all faculty and adjuncts. The Digital Scholarship Gurus are students working closely with the ID team to provide support for students on multimodal projects through in-class instruction, one-on-one sessions, and workshops.
The AECT has defined instructional design as “the theory and practice of design, development, utilization, management and evaluation of processes and resources of learning” (Seels & Richey).
The field of instructional design is to focus on the improvement of efficiency and effectiveness of instruction through 5 areas; design, development, utilization, management, and evaluation.
