We bring an impressive array of expertise in the component subjects that comprise instructional design. Learning theory, instructional technology, online course design, and curriculum design to name a few. Our Instructional Designers study current research and emerging trends to inform our work and partner with experts on teaching and learning, both inside and outside the UIW community.
Many people wonder what Instructional Designers are. We are architects of learning experiences and directors of the process followed to plan, create, and deliver instruction.
Some areas you can expect to work with us on:
Any crisis is an opportunity for growth and change. The disruption caused by the pandemic coupled with our move to the Canvas Learning Management System has yielded some fertile conditions for evaluating and modifying our curriculum.
As we become more comfortable, more confident with Canvas, the work of refining curriculum will become self-evident. Canvas will be conducive to this endeavor and the Instructional Design team will be there to partner with faculty and administrators to assure success for the UIW Community.
