The Instructional Design team seeks to ignite innovative and inspire learning experiences in face-to-face, hybrid and online courses. We partner with The University of Texas at Tyler faculty to improve and design high-impact learning experiences. Collaborate with us on course design, pedagogy and technology to create and deliver an effective face-to-face, hybrid and/or online course.

Instructional Design Consultation

Whether you are developing a course from scratch or reimagining a singular assignment, book a consultation with a member of our ID team. Together, we'll brainstorm ideas and explore the best strategies for creating and delivering engaging face-to-face, hybrid, and online courses. Consider meeting with us to talk about:

New Course Development – Let our instructional designers guide you in developing well-structured and engaging courses. We'll collaborate with you to design course materials, organize content, create multimedia resources, and implement interactive elements that promote student engagement and learning.

Course Alignment and Objectives - Ensure alignment between your course goals, learning objectives, assessments, content, and technologies. We'll work closely with you to create a cohesive and effective learning experience that prepares students for long-term success.

Assignment and Assessment Brainstorm - Do you have an activity which is running well but has an element that needs to be changed which you can not quite define? Partner with an instructional designer to brainstorm ways to rework the assignment or assessment to meet you and your students' needs.

Online Course Review – Enlist an instructional designer to review and make wholistic recommendations for your online course. We developed this Online Course Review Guide which you can utilize with us or one of your colleagues.

Transforming Your Face-to-Face Course to Online - Discover how to leverage your current class in an online learning space. Our ID team can provide guidance on integrating educational technologies, such as interactive tools, multimedia resources, and online pedagogy, to create an interactive and dynamic learning experience.

Accessibility - Ensure your courses are accessible to all students by conducting a thorough course accessibility review. We'll assist you in making your content and instructional materials accessible to students with disabilities, ensuring equal access and an inclusive learning environment.
