CTL Course Design Services
CTL believes that pedagogy informs technology. We value the importance of the instructor’s unique approach to teaching as it the main catalyst for student engagement. Therefore, our instructional designer will collaborate with you to develop online and face-to-face courses that align with your teaching.
The Instructional Designer can assist faculty with all stages of online course design by taking on many different roles – from assisting instructors as they work on their own courses to completely designing a course from the ground up based on faculty content. Using 30 years of teaching experience along with certifications in online course design, the ID can help you build and execute your courses using Quality Matters best practices. In addition to assisting with online course modalities, the ID can also support your face-to-face teaching methods by providing ways to facilitate student engagement with active learning practices. Explore the services below for more details and feel free to contact Kate Hoof for a one-on-one meeting.
