What is Instructional Design?



The Department of Instructional Design is a member of the Learning Commons. The team provides instruction, support and trouble-shooting for all enterprise-level instructional technologies (for example Bridges learning management system, Panopto Focus video capture, Turnitin anti-plagiarism, etc.). Instructional design consultation is available for faculty who are interested in transitioning a traditional on-campus course to a fully online or hybrid model or even just to brainstorm the use of technology tools and strategies as a supplement to enhance learning.

The ID team includes Linda Beith and Kevin O’Rourke who are instructional designers, as well as Shawn Platt who is an instructional technologist.
