Introduction to Instructional Design

Course Description

Overview: In our latest course revision, BUILD has been further updated to help instructors learn how to create, enhance, and build effective digital content. BUILD introduces and/or refreshes faculty knowledge around creating solid online strategies, accessible content and assessment design, and comprehensive resources using the LMS. 

Like most of our faculty development course offerings, BUILD is an expert-facilitated, cohort-based experience that is completed among a professional learning community of your peers.

Length:  This is now an accelerated 20-hour, 4-week course. 

Certification. This intermediate-level course is BUILD-level certification, our second level of certification in a three-level certification step process for teaching, building and leading courses in D2L Brightspace. It is also a prerequisite for most of our LEAD course offerings.
