Connecting Instructional Designers Through Collaboration, Practice, and Growth

Thursday, April 20 | 2:20PM–2:50PM
Session Type: Virtual
Designing impactful learning experiences is strategically important to every institution. Increasingly, instructional designers are helping to fill this role by supporting faculty and developing innovative approaches to enhancing course quality. As the instructional design community continues to grow, institutions will make decisions about how to invest limited resources to develop new instructional design or learning design capabilities. Taking a connected approach to keeping current while working across departments or silos is essential to this growth. This session will explore a professional development program that provides the structure for instructional designers to share their mutual areas of expertise while focusing on key areas of professional growth. This presentation will include methods for matching mentors and mentees, affordances of participating, and the learning outcomes for skill development.
