Instructional Design

You know your course best

Our resources at the KU Center for Online and Distance Learning are here to add a layer of pedagogy and best practices expertise to your hybrid or online course. Whether meeting with our staff in Budig 4 or in your office, we consider our work with faculty to be a partnership.  Wherever you are along the continuum of online, hybrid, or flipped course format, we work with you to facilitate course development with teaching and learning outcomes at the forefront of our work.

How do I get started?

  • Contact us. It's as simple as that. We will start working with you wherever you are to envision how an online, hybrid, or flipped course format might work for your discipline and students.
  • Collaborate with us. Let us help you early in the course creation or revision process to see how you can best utilize teaching and learning tools with improved outcomes in mind.  The more lead time we have, the better the results can be.  Even if you’re planning a course many months in advance, please give us a call.

If you are not familiar with online, hybrid or flipped learning, our team can share examples to help you think about the possibilities. 
We provide hands-on course development support, working with you to create media for your courses, and being your resource during the semester and beyond.

 

If you would like to have detailed instructions on how to use the course design worksheet, please view the video below to help guide you through using the form.

 

We look forward to collaborating with you!
