Why an ID?
What does an instructional designer do? An ID will help you systematically design or redesign for improved learning, motivation, content acquisition, retention, authenticity, teacher satisfaction, time saving, problem solving....success!
So, why not?
You are the content expert. We help solve problems, brainstorm solutions, integrate tech, project manage, analyze data, explore options, build personalized solutions.
What we do:
Infuse teaching style/mission
Break down large tasks
Address recursive process
Change happens (demographics, technology, research on learning, accreditation...) and if we are to continue to offer exemplary student service, we must too!
Full time faculty
Has great success with classes, but feels a bit burned out, or students seem less than motivated to read, come prepared, move learning to the real world, etc.
Has no idea about plagiarism (except how to do it), needs time management help, struggles with content vocabulary, high risk of drop-out
Working hard to be a part of the institution, wants to give stellar service, needs to be a part of the team
Can "play" well at school, can learn successfully, but may not see real world connection, know how to scaffold learning, use technology for continued learning
