Feedback form is now closed.
Instructional designers receive unusual and/or challenging requests. Sometimes these requests require the abilities to research, problem solve, and prioritize to offer quality service while maintaining positive relationships between faculty and instructional support professionals. Collaboration with colleagues across institutions presents an ideal way to navigate these complex requests. In this session, facilitators will engage participants in a group ideation activity to review strategies for managing requests and simulate the collaborative process.

For this session, participants should consider recent unusual and/or challenging instructional design requests for review and analysis. Attendees should plan to engage with colleagues across campuses and institutional types in a dialogue about approaching instructional design projects.

Session Objectives:
Participants will be able to...
  • identify and classify complex instructional design requests;
  • explore strategies for managing and processing instructional design requests; and
  • collaborate with cross-institutional peers and experience the group ideation process.
