Instructional Design Services
What is Instructional Design Services?
IDServices 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.
IDServices 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.
IDServices 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 covers course structure and building, ADA compliance, pedagogy, the use of Open Education Resources, multimedia, graphics and more.
Workshops, Group Discussions and Projects
Workshops, 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. While most sessions are geared for instructors teaching online/hybrid courses, many, if not all topics will enrich all teaching practices.
