Report Instructional Designers in Higher Education
This report is based on a survey conducted by Huron's Market Intelligence Group, with editorial support from "The Chronicle of Higher Education."
There is an increased demand for instructional designers in higher education who have the knowledge and skills to help faculty members adopt new technologies and strategies in their teaching.
Traditionally, instructional designers were focused on creating online courses on campus, but they now play a part in consulting with faculty members on pedagogy and course design — as well as how to determine the best use of technology.
The report addresses:
- How faculty and instructional designers are changing the classroom experience and redesigning courses to teach a new generation of students
- Dynamics among instructional designers, faculty members, and their institutions
- Attitudes of faculty members about having instructional designers add new teaching methods and technology to their courses
- Challenges instructional designers face in their efforts
- Considerations for the future of instructional design in higher education.
