Instructional design involves working with faculty and instructors to analyze learning goals and needs and develop instructional strategies, learning materials, or other tools to meet them. Designers can provide assistance and support with the development of online, blended, and face to face courses and the use of Canvas to create an effective learning -environment .

Instructional designers are also familiar with a variety of technology options and can be a resource for determining how to use technology to meet the desired educational goal.

Please refer to the link in the left navigation of this page for information about educational design support and the Canvas course templates that we have available.
