Introduction to Instructional Design - Cancelled
The COVID-19 pandemic radically shifted the educational paradigm worldwide, forcing teachers and students to embrace online learning whether they were ready or not. The consequences of the pandemic on student engagement and retention will be felt for years to come, especially among student populations that already faced social inequalities. Engaging with students in 2023 and beyond requires new and innovative approaches to curricular design and instruction.
Introduction to Instructional Design is a 15-hour workshop that provides educators with the necessary tools to build curriculum for the post-COVID student. Appropriate for educators of all skill and experience levels, this workshop brings clarity to the ambiguous and disjointed nature of classroom instruction in 2023. You will learn the basics of in-person and online instructional design, learning management systems, Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles, Quality Matters (QM) rubrics, and tactics to motivate students post-COVID.
Central to this workshop are teaching methods and tools to help student populations most affected by the pandemic. You will help address these social inequalities by applying the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion to instructional design. This workshop also addresses ADA compliant lesson plans and provides information on additional resources and training options.
This workshop includes a mix of lecture, discussion, and projects designed to provide participants with a detailed overview of instructional design post-pandemic. Workshop meetings will be conducted online via Zoom. Assignments and resources will be provided on Canvas.
There has never been a better time to learn about, or refresh your knowledge of, instructional design. This timely workshop has all of the resources you will need to get started. Reserve your space today!
