What is Instructional Design?
According to the Instructional Design Central (IDC) website, instructional design
has to do with the systematic process or processes in which instructional materials
are designed, developed, and delivered. Instructional designers design, create, and
deliver educational training material in face-to-face and online environments. These
materials vary from e-learning courses, instructional video, interactives, manuals,
handouts, and more.
Instructional Design and Development at UNC
Your Instructional Design and Development team is here to support faculty in the service of student learning. We work with faculty to design and develop online, hybrid, and face-to-face courses and course components. As a team, we work directly with faculty to translate pedagogy into online content and learning opportunities. Our design and development work is informed by course learning objectives and customized to instructor style. We design and develop course structure, content presentation, student engagement, and assessment. We also provide online course technology support and training.
