Why Online Learning Programs Need Instructional Designers

  • Price: FREE


By registration; Administrators focus on developing and coordinating academic and student programs. Their work often includes long-term planning, fundraising, maintaining student records, and providing student services. Educators and instructors design curriculum, mentor students, teach classes, and evaluate academic performance. So, whose job is it to integrate online learning into the overall school experience, train faculty to be online educators, and evaluate the effectiveness of online learning for your institution?

Join Lindsay Andreolli-Comstock, president and principal consultant for The School of Global Citizenry, as she demystifies the crucial role of instructional designers as an indispensable partner in creating and maintaining successful online learning programs. She will discuss how instructional designers enable schools of theological education to design and deliver more effective and impactful online learning experiences. 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 second 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.
