What Does a Learning Designer Do?
If you’ve ever wondered what exactly a Learning Designer does, take a moment to listen to our staff talk about what design is all about.
A Learning Designer is assigned to each college to provide a single design support contact for online offerings (80% or more online).
Each designer has an advanced degree in education, teaches online, and can help faculty in the following ways:
- Designing a new or enhancing the design of an existing online course
- Assist in developing a master (templated) course design for a given course
- Provide creative ideas for solving teaching challenges
- Share effective strategies to engage your students
- Help identify and mitigate potential problem areas
- Assist in implementing technology
- Direct faculty to additional services and resources
A Learning Designer is a great go-to person for any conversation related to teaching and using technology to support teaching. For some questions and conversations, a Learning Designer may involve personnel from IT Instructional Services (ITIS) for additional technology support, or the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL).
