Do our new online faculty need triage help?
Reported by EdSurge, the Instructional Design Emergency Response Network is a volunteer network of 300 instructional designers and counting, established and willing to help faculty currently scrambling to provide quality online educational experiences.
The takeaway? Higher ed is such a generous community, and we need that generosity right now more than ever. Because many of our faculty are underprepared to maintain the same level of student engagement they’re so good at capturing in the in-class environment. So let’s not hesitate to ask for help from such a large cohort of willing instructional designers. But our institutions may need to spin up and hire some new online quality management positions as well to help our faculty transition.
May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
