Instructional designers ensure students learn efficiently by assisting instructors in creating high-quality learning materials and activities that consider the varying backgrounds of all students. The ID assists faculty with leveraging technology, overcoming instructional challenges, implementing effective synchronous/asynchronous pedagogy, and achieving better student learning.

Faculty who intend to teach online asynchronous or hybrid courses for the first time must complete TCC’s Teaching & Learning Course in Canvas (TLC) before teaching online. TLC is a self-directed, asynchronous course focused on expanding course design skills, exploring new ways to engage students, and using technology more effectively for distance learning. The course includes opportunities for feedback from an instructional designer and results in the initial development of a Canvas course designed for online instruction. For more information about this course, visit the Distance Learning Resources Site in Canvas. 

The Pathways: Adopting Open Educational Resources in the Classroom, a continuing education course for faculty/instructors and educational support staff. It will introduce faculty to the meaning and benefits of open education, where to locate existing open educational resources, and how to revise, remix, and create new resources to share. Additional information may be found through TCC libraries at Open Educational Resources

The Department of Distance Learning provides direct support for Zoom, including technical and instructional design guidance for synchronous distance learning.
