College Instructional Design Specialists

CETLSS Instructional Design Specialists

Our center aspires to lead campus conversations about transformative teaching and its relationship to quality student experiences, learning, and success, no matter the modality. We aim to support you as you design highly effective learning experiences and inclusive, student-centered learning environments that are the hallmarks of teaching excellence at Appalachian State. Our center also supports strategic campus initiatives and is dedicated to strengthening and advancing our collective work related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

With all of that in mind, meet our team of highly-trained Instructional Design Specialists. On any given day, you'll find them working with you and your colleagues, often in the one-on-one consults that are our bread and butter, in a variety of modalities on a broad range of topics. They are the professionals who stand in the gap between your teaching strategies and the technologies you use to create your students' best course experiences. They also lead your favorite workshops, create resources you can use asynchronously (watch for them in your support videos!), and sometimes even teach the same courses you do to keep in touch with the latest trends and the student experience.
