Online & Hybrid Course Design

Instructional design combines principles from education, psychology, and communication to design, develop, and deliver content in a manner that is optimal for online learners.  It takes into consideration HOW students learn and what type of instructional materials and activities help students achieve academic success.  Your designer will help you define objectives, organize course flow, maximize student engagement, integrate technology, & achieve results!   


BW Instructional Designers use the standards prescribed by Quality Matters (QM), an international leader in online education, to guide course design.  If you are new to teaching online at BW, you are required to participate in the OHIO (Online & Hybrid Instructor Orientation) training course.  You will learn best practices and strategies for teaching online such as establishing measurable learning outcomes and building from there.

All faculty have access to Ed Tech's OHIO course.  Look for it under "Courses" in Blackboard.  It covers best practices in online course design and contains many helpful videos, documents, and resources.
