Instructional Design Services
The Instructional Design Services (IDS) unit is comprised of learning professionals who support a broad range of faculty needs related to teaching and learning at Doane. Using in-depth understanding of pedagogy, team members provide expert guidance to faculty during the design, development and implementation of blended, online, and technology-enhanced face-to-face courses.
In partnership with faculty, as subject matter experts, the team creates exceptional learning experiences for students across the disciplines using evidence-based instructional strategies. Beyond creating engaging courses where students are actively involved in their own learning, the team ensures that courses satisfy accessibility requirements and quality standards.
Furthermore, due to the rapid-changing nature of educational technology, the IDS team constantly explores new and emerging technologies for use in the learning environment and shares this knowledge about effective practices with faculty through one-on-one consultation and group training.
