ID Services Support Hub and the Academic Technology Center

The Instructor Support Hub
This hub is a space for triaging immediate problems and as a place where you can post questions or help others with the issues that are stumping them. Each week you'll also see a new featured practice in the course and have a chance to discuss and explore it further with one of our instructional designers.

What is Instructional Design Services?

ID Services is geared to support instructors in the development and growth of distance education (DE) courses. The idea is to tap into not just one or two experts in instruction and technology but to connect and provide a network of support and expertise from within Lane’s own DE teaching community, teachers supporting teachers. We are part of the Academic Technology Department and partner with the ATC, Media Services, Lane's Library, the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), the Center for Accessible Resources (CAR) and Tutoring Services. There is only one goal in mind–to assist you with all of your distance education teaching and learning needs!

What is an Instructional Designer?

At Lane, an Instructional Designer is a faculty member dedicated to helping interested LCC faculty make effective use of the web and related technologies as part of the teaching-learning process. Within this role, we are prepared to work as information resources, facilitators, consultants, advocates, troubleshooters, liaisons, advisers, and leaders.

ID Services currently has a team of six Instructional Designers; Jill Gillett, Meredith Keene, Jenn Kepka, Jen Sacklin, Mel Stark and Kevin Steeves. Meggie Wright is our OER Librarian. We are here to assist you with the logistics of instructional design as it applies to course development and improvement. Our areas of expertise cover course structure and building, accessibility, pedagogy, the use of Open Education Resources, multimedia, graphics and more.

Our Core Process for Course Development (or improvement)

Our goal is to prepare and assist faculty in developing and delivering courses following research-based best practices for student success and retention. The course development and improvement process are intended for any courses designated as a Distance Education modality

The following documents outline the process: 

* At this time, ID Services does not have training in place that addresses the specific needs of a pedagogical approach to teaching within a hyflex modality. The Dten Virtual training offers information on the technology.

Are you ready to get started? Contact ID Services at to set up a consultation. We're here to help! There are no on-campus orientation sessions scheduled at this time however you can always meet one-on-one with an instructional designer via Zoom to go over the process. 

Not ready for full course development? Check out other training and development opportunities

Workshops, courses, projects and group discussions are presented by Academic Technology's Instructional Designers and other instructors from within the Lane community. They are designed to be short, informative, hands-on sessions or discussions covering various technologies and pedagogies as they relate to instruction. Academic Technology also offers opportunities outside of the Lane community. Sessions are geared for instructors teaching Distance Education modalities, but many, if not all topics will enrich all teaching practices.

For the current schedule go to ID Services: Course Development and Support Opportunities. Check back often! We are updating/adding new workshops and training opportunities throughout the year.
