Learning Technologies Training and Development

The Department of Instructional Design, along with our Learning Commons partners, provides a range of options for faculty and student development around instructional technologies from one-on-one consultations, to on-campus workshops, online workshops, in-class tutorials and just-in-time access to electronic tutorials and documentation. Options include:

One-on-One Consultations

If you would like to make an appointment with a member of the Instructional Design staff to learn about a specific software or strategy, please send e-mail to id@rwu.edu and include your name, contact information, the topic you wish to work on and your availability. Someone will get back to you to schedule a meeting. Most meetings will be held in our Instructional Design Education & Application (IDEA) Space on the first floor of the University Main Library.

Group Sessions by Request

The ID staff is also available to do departmental or small group workshops on request. These can be done right in your department if this works for the group. Please send your request for this type of session to id@rwu.edu and include your contact information, the topic you would like covered, the members of the group that would like to be included and some suggested meeting times.

On-Campus Workshops

If you prefer to come onto campus to participate in a hands-on instructional design or learning technologies instructor-led session then please explore the summer and winter intersession schedules and register for a topic of interest. If you don't see what you want, please send e-mail to id@rwu.edu and request a session. We'll do our best to accommodate your needs.

Online Workshops

Want to investigate a learning technology without leaving your office or home computer? We will be using our GoToMeeting web conferencing system to offer these short topics. To join us simply register for a session and you'll receive a meeting link in your e-mail. Just click on the link and you will be able to see us, hear us and view a demonstration. You will have the opportunity to participate and ask questions either through text chat or through audio: microphone on your computer or by phone. Either way this is a convenient option to learn something new. Again is there is a topic of interest that you don't see listed just e-mail your request to id@rwu.edu.

Classroom Tutorials

If you would like a member of the Instructional Design team to come into a class and provide a demonstration of  a particular technology - for example creating an e-portfolio or a project website - please e-mail your request to id@rwu.edu and include your name, the course, the preferred day and time for a tutorial as well as the topic to be covered. The team will do its best to accommodate your needs.

Please note that for some topics - for example, eportfolios - additional consultation will be necessary prior to the tutorial session.
