Instructional Design

The Educational Technology unit provides instructional design services for in-person, hybrid, and online courses include: course design, course re-design, and course review. Using a course design process is key in creating a quality course. An Instructional Designer will help you to align your course outcomes with appropriate learning objectives, assessments, activities, and materials.


Step 1: Submit a Technology Consultation Request for assistance with course design from an Instructional Designer. Please specify the course, the modality (i.e. face-to-face, online, or hybrid), and when you are planning to teach it.

Step 2: Meet with an Instructional Designer.

Step 3: Use the course design process. Together with an Instructional Designer, he/she will guide you in: mapping your course, outlining lessons, creating lessons, updating your syllabus and course schedule, using the Leeward DE Guidelines (for DE courses), teaching, reflecting, and iterating. You are encouraged to participate in other professional development, as needed.
