  • Course Design Intro (CDI)
    (Self-paced, asynchronous, paid 20 hours at CD rate)

    Join your faculty colleagues and an instructional designer in a five-week online course covering current research and best practices around online teaching. This course is self-paced, asynchronous and paid at 20hrs at CD rate. There will be a non-mandatory open lab offered each week via Zoom. At the end of this training, you'll have a plan built for your next online course, and perhaps a new understanding of what students experience in the online realm. Please note: If you were previously enrolled in a different session but want to return at a more leisurely pace, drop us a line! Any faculty member teaching online, remote, or hybrid this year is eligible to participate. Questions? Contact IDservices@lanecc.edu.

  • Remote Learning 101. This is a self-paced module created by NEA and hosted in OEA's learning management system, OEA Learn. The module is for educators new to remote learning. In this module, you will be introduced to basic tools and best practices for remote learning. Most people take between 30-90 minutes to complete the module depending on how much time is spent reviewing the supplemental resources included in the tutorial. It is entirely self-paced, does not include a facilitator, and does not involve interaction with other participants. There are extensive resources available in this module that can be viewed or saved at your leisure. For more information or to register go to Remote Learning 101 Registration.

  • The Instructional Design Accessibility webpage will be coming later in the spring. We will feature new accessibility workshops, resources and we'll be launching the Accessibility Challenge.

For more details about workshops, courses and self-help training go to LaneOnline Training and Development Opportunities AY 2020. Check back often! We are updating/adding new workshops and training opportunities throughout the year.

Academic Technology Center/ ID Services Support Hub

Please go to the ATC website for current ATC support information. The ATC can either help you or refer you to an ID.

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 online and hybrid courses. The idea is to tap into not just one or two experts in online instruction but to connect and provide a network of support and expertise from within Lane’s own online teaching community, teachers supporting teachers. 

ID Services is a part of the Academic Technology Department and partners with the ATC, the Design and Media Center, Lane's Library, Center for Accessible Resources (CAR) and Instructional Testing Services. One big family with only one goal in mind–to assist you with all of your online 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 three Instructional Designers; Meredith Keene, Jenn Kepka and Kevin Steeves.  We are here to assist you with the logistics of instructional design as it applies to online and hybrid coursework. Our areas of expertise cover course structure and building, ADA compliance, pedagogy, the use of Open Education Resources, multimedia, graphics and more.

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. While most sessions are geared for instructors teaching online/hybrid courses, many, if not all topics will enrich all teaching practices.

For more details go to LaneOnline Training and Development Opportunities AY 2020-21. Check back often! We are updating/adding new workshops and training opportunities throughout the year.

Getting Started with Online Course Development

Our goal is to prepare and assist faculty in the development and delivery of online courses following research-based best practices for student success and retention. This website will provide research, guides and procedures to help you with your work. 

Choose a path to get to the heart of the website where we post information about exploring, designing, developing and delivering your online/hybrid courses. We will be adding new information on a regular basis and hope to make this one of the best resource hubs possible for online teaching and learning.
