Overview

Instructional design is the process of designing, delivering, and reviewing learning experiences. The Instructional Designers at UWL can offer consultation, coaching, workshops, and trainings on significant, student-centered teaching and learning. Their services are available at any stage of the course design, development and delivery process (i.e. any time between the initial concept and post-end evaluation). Working with an Instructional Designer can help you identify simple improvements to your course, or possibly inspire you to re-envision your entire approach to teaching and learning.
