Abstract:

This seminar is for professors, teaching staff and anyone else who is designing and delivering learning experiences for students. We will introduce key principles of instructional design, a multidisciplinary field that encompasses learning psychology, human performance and technology, and discuss processes that you can incorporate in your current teaching and learning design and delivery practice.

We will also draw from perspectives of practitioners at Stanford University, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Arizona State University, who will contribute to the discussions via recorded videos. From this seminar, participants can expect to gain insights, practical skills and the confidence to help them better design the learning experiences they want their learners to have.
