Instructional design assistance is available to all members of the university instructional community who develop or deliver technology-enhanced instruction, including faculty members (full-time, part-time, visiting, adjunct, TA) and administrative staff with training responsibilities. Instructional designers offer free workshops and/or one-on-one coaching on both the Modesto Maidique and Biscayne Bay Campuses.
Our instructional designers provide consultation and support as you plan and develop your course or course module. Designers will work with you as closely as you wish, acting as coaches or solving problems encountered during the development process. In addition, designers may even be able to do some of your development work depending on factors such as the nature of the project, the timeline, and whether or not funding is available.
Instructional designers can assist you with:
- Defining what you need to integrate technology effectively in your courses
- Selecting an appropriate course format (fully online, web-assisted, hybrid, or integration of technology into a face-to-face course)
- Writing performance-based learning objectives
- Designing active learning activities
- Creating or modifying content or media for online delivery
- Evaluating course design
- Enhancing existing online courses
- Delivering one-on-one coaching and small group presentations
- Identifying other resources that can contribute to the course development e.g. Broadcast Video, Graphics, Photography, and Training
- And much more!
If you don’t see what you’re looking for, just ask.
How to Get Started?
Simply call the Resource Center at 305.348.2814 to schedule an appointment at either the Modesto A. Maidique or Biscayne Bay Campus. Please note: The earlier you consult with an instructional designer, the better. We recommend starting at least 3 months in advance of teaching the course.
