What can an Instructional designer do for you?

Submitting an online or flex course for review soon? Let our instructional designers, who are experts in the OSCQR rubric, help you pass the review on the first attempt.

Creating a brand-new course? Come talk to an instructional designer about the course setup and the best teaching strategy for your course.

Would you like to amp up the quality of your course? Ask an instructional designer to review your course and work with you on improving the course quality.

Do you have a module or an assignment with which your students usually struggle? Come talk to an instructional designer and see if we can help you devise a better strategy to help students meet the course outcomes more efficiently.

Not sure how to fix course materials with accessibility issues? Come talk to an instructional designer for guidance on how to make your course materials accessible to all students.

Do you have a training need in the area of teaching? Schedule a session with an instructional designer to help you address it.
