  • Price: FREE


By registration; While preferred by many of today’s students, online learning can be a stressful environment to navigate for administrators and educators. Keeping up with rapidly changing technology and evolving copyright laws can be time-consuming. Building virtual community and measuring online knowledge retention can be complex. All of this, while trying to ensure students are meeting the academic demands of the institution.

Join Lindsay Andreolli-Comstock, president and principal consultant for The School of Global Citizenry, as she offers an overview of instructional design theory as it applies to online learning programs. She will discuss how instructional design principles facilitate the creation of structured, engaging, and effective online courses that meet the diverse needs of students, educators, and administrators. Time will be provided at the end of the presentation for questions.

This event is designed for various stakeholders in online education, including those involved in strategic planning, quality assurance, information technology, and student success. The first in a two-part instructional design webinar series, this recorded event is presented by the ATS Pathways Coordination Program for all interested ATS member schools.
