Exploring an Evolving Landscape: Emerging Models for Instructional Design Practice

Tuesday, March 19 | 11:30AM–12:15PM ET | Room 555
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
We will offer brief vignettes of different models for supporting the development of instructional design roles and practice at two small liberal arts colleges (that do not offer online degree programs or courses). Importantly, these models will provide the opportunity to examine how the work of instructional design is being defined, where IDs are positioned within evolving IT organizations, and what has begun to show success, as well as directions for future development. The session will invite open discussion about organizational development and change as we think about contemporary models for support instructional design work in higher education.

Outcomes: Increase your awareness of the state of instructional design practice in higher ed * Gain an understanding of how other institutions are supporting instructional design work * Realize the value of sharing and evaluating emerging instructional design models to enhance teaching and learning
