Technology Enhanced Instructional Design (TEID)

Mission: To help faculty improve delivery of their instructional content through the effective use of technology. This is accomplished through its integration into face-to-face courses, designing new online courses, revising current face-to-face content for online delivery, or revamping outdated courses or assignments.

TEID is made up of four instructional designers who are experienced in both face-to-face and online instruction. They are Quality Matters (QM) trained and certified, and can help faculty realize the full potential of of e-learning, video & audio content, social networking, and virtual reality in the classroom.

To assist our faculty, we have developed a Blackboard model course that encompasses many of the QM principles and is available for UCM faculty use. Course developers can utilize the model as a core framework, inserting their own semester's content while finding several helpful common links already in place. Contact unit coordinator Kathryn McCormick at 543-4359 for access to the model.

In addition, to help maintain consistency and quality, we provide voluntary QM-based internal reviews of online courses. A TEID team member will look over the class and provide a written assessment using our in-house review rubric developed according to QM standards. Contact Kathryn McCormick for more information about this process.

We also offer training for faculty who are interested in learning more about each of the eight QM standards. TEID provides instructional assistance with various tools that make learning more engaging for our students, including blogs, wikis, and social networking.
