Instructional designers collaborate with faculty on the use, development, and evaluation of a wide range of teaching and learning technologies. We are available to assist in the design of assignments, projects, or courses that involve digital tools and spaces. You may have an idea for a project or assignment that uses story mapping, timelines, podcasts, video, infographics, social media, or you would like to develop an online course space. Set up a consult. We look forward to discussing how to explore hybrid modalities in ways that meaningfully add to students’ learning experiences.
