Join us for Instructional Design: Fueling Change and Innovation, an online focus session presented by the Educause Learning Initiative (ELI)

Instructional design has emerged as the key resource for fueling change and innovation in teaching and learning. This new importance brings with it significant challenges, as instructional design must keep pace with—if not remain a step or two ahead of—the new directions and opportunities to support learners:

  • What new organizational models and practices do instructional design teams need to adopt?

  • How can instructional designers best make use of the increasing amount of learning data that is available?

  • What kinds of evidence-based practices make the most sense for instructional designers?

  • What are some professional development approaches that provide structure for instructional designers to share their mutual areas of expertise, while focusing on key areas of professional growth?

Faculty, instructors, and academic staff are invited to take part as a group in the online session where 10 instructional design experts and innovators will explore current issues and show how we can collectively seek ways to best support our institutions. View the agenda.
