Immersive instructional design workshop

December 2, 2021 All day

Ten City Tech faculty will be selected to participate in a paid, virtual January immersive instructional design workshop in which they will learn about information literacy, reflect on discipline specific research practices and  Information Literacy (IL) skills, and be introduced to accessible Instructional Design (ID) principles. Participants will complete readings and participate in discussions (both on zoom and in discussion boards) in order to better understand information literacy and research practices across different disciplines. The workshop will culminate in the production of an openly licensed digital learning object or short tutorial.   The online workshop will contain synchronous (one 2-hour workshop) and asynchronous content totaling 15 hours paid at the participant’s non-teaching rate. Both full- and part-time faculty are encouraged to apply.

Learning outcomes: By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to

  • Define information literacy in their academic discipline 
  • Be familiar with instructional design principles
  • Understand how accessibility, universal design, and instructional design best practices intersect with the development of instructional design tools, tutorials, and interactive activities
  • Design and produce a tutorial, digital learning object, or classroom-based/self-paced activity that introduces information literacy concepts in your discipline
