Join us on September 14th, 2022 from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm in the CAIFS Professional Development course in Blackboard to learn how to create clear, consistent Blackboard courses that are easy to navigate!

Why does it matter? The Morrison, Ross, and Kemp Instructional Design Model highlights the importance of consistent, logical, and sequenced course structure to move students through the intellectual and developmental path of your course.

The Open CoLab at Plymouth University argues for the importance of values-driven instructional design. This means our organizational choices are not arbitrary or purely logistical; they are rooted in core educational values of adaptability, connection, and equity (ACE). For adaptability, they recommend the organizational strategy of course modules to help guide students through shifts in content, structure, and tasks and to increase their ability to adapt to new ideas and challenges by offering consistent, sequential, and logical ways to break up content.

Participate in this workshop to turn the theory into meaningful practice in your own courses.
