Looking For An Instructional Design Program?

Another item from Monday’s inbox…

Online Learning Consortium -
Which OLC Instructional Design Program
Is Right for You?
Dear Michael,

Have you been considering an OLC program in Instructional Design but aren’t sure which is right for you?

The Institute for Professional Development is pleased to offer two different options for instructional designers and eLearning professionals looking to improve their competencies in online course design and development.

The Instructional Design Mastery Series is a series of three workshops. Throughout each of the workshops, you will explore common instructional design techniques (based on relevant research) and use such strategies to help you design an effective learning unit. The next cohort starts June 7, register today!

The Instructional Designer Certificate Program helps prepare instructional designers for working with faculty subject matter experts throughout the course design/development process. The full program is comprised of 4 four-week workshops which can be completed over a six-month period. Join us starting July 10.

I hope this helps you define which program options (or both) might work best for your professional development needs. Learn more.
