New Directions in Instructional Design: Keeping Pace in a Time of Rapid Change
Wednesday 4/19/2017 and Thursday 4/20/2017
12:00 - 3:30 pm each day (attend all or part of either or both days)
This ELI Focus Session is an interactive virtual conference across two days, featuring live web-based presentations, participant discussions, and activities supporting the theme: "New Directions in Instructional Design." See the full event schedule here.
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?
This online event will bring together a variety of teaching and learning professionals to explore successful models for leadership in teaching and learning. The session will be valuable for:
- Learning technologists and instructional designers
- Campus teaching and learning center directors and staff
- Faculty members and instructors
- Senior teaching and learning administrators (e.g., deans, provost office staff)
Join CIT staff in our meeting room for one or both days, to view the sessions and engage in discussion with Duke colleagues and those from other institutions. Please register if you plan to attend.
