A team of Instructional Designers are available to provide assistance to instructors, administrators and staff. Whether you need to develop a full course or program, review and revise an existing course, or flip all or part of your course, Instructional Designers are here to help. We provide instructional design assistance for fully online, flipped, hybrid, blended and traditional face-to-face courses. If instructors have any questions or concerns about a course, we are available in person, over the phone, by email, or through web-conferencing tools.

Benefits of Working with an Instructional Designer
Since instructional designers utilize evidence based pedagogical models and principles, working with an instructional designer can:
- Provide strategies to humanize the course (teaching, social and cognitive presence)
- Increase student engagement and success
- Ensure accessibility
- Enhance course organization and usability
- Improve consistency within a course and across a program
- Strengthen quality of lectures and other instructor-created material
Our instructional designers are happy to answer any questions and help solve any issues regarding fully online, on-campus, or Hyflex courses. Please do understand that an instructional designer will not "push" the use of a tool or activity simply for the sake of using technology. They are here to help determine what will appropriately and effectively meet pedagogical needs. If a tool does not work effectively for a course, the instructional designer will suggest alternatives.
