Instructional Tech & Design Toolkit

Introduction to the Toolkit

Flower of Life by Cass Reese from the Noun Project

Created to help you design and implement exceptional and engaging courses, and curated by Research and Educational Services (RES) librarians, this guide:

  • Provides proven design models, theories, research, and best practices to help you create outcome-based and student-centered learning.
  • Showcases methods to present your course materials and encourage students to communicate with you and each other.
  • Supports an iterative design process by allowing you to review course effectiveness and highlight opportunities to revise and re-envision your courses.
  • Gives you the support that you need to get started or try something new, and highlights opportunities to collaborate with colleagues.
  • Brings together tools and resources into one sortable and searchable toolkit, as well as collections of open educational resources, such as textbooks, assignments, and lesson plans.
