Learning Resource Development Call for Proposals

The Open Educational Resources Committee and IDD are accepting proposals and awarding grants through early Spring 2023, or until all 2022-23 funds are granted. In addition to $600 awards, grantees will also get instructional design and development production support to create learning resources that can be smoothly integrated into online courses. Grant funded participants agree to share their resource with UNC instructors using UNCO_LE@RN, a digital repository in Canvas Commons.
The granting committee will award grants based on how well proposals meet the requirements outlined. If colleagues want to collaborate, the committee will consider awarding $600 to each collaborator. Proposals are due anytime until February 19, 2023. Final learning resources are due by June 30, 2023. For more information, contact Instructional.Design@unco.edu.

What is Instructional Design and Development (IDD) at UNC?

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 and training materials in face-to-face and online environments. These materials vary and include fully online courses, instructional video, interactives, on-demand training, and more.

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 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.
