What does Instructional Design do?
Instructional Design at Highline is charged with three key goals:
- To assist faculty with curriculum design and instructional materials development
- Build a community of practice around the use of technology in teaching
- Support faculty development of online, hybrid, and technology-enhanced courses
We do this through a combination of project partnerships with faculty or departments (for example, redesigning a program to modular, open-entry courses), workshops, seminars and discussion groups, and one-on-one, just-in-time consulting.
Department staff are involved in IT leadership, technology training, distance learning, faculty development, teaching in several different departments, and multimedia production.
