Abstract

Abstract: This paper explores instructional designers’ role in assisting instructors in the implementation of best practices in distance learning course design and delivery in higher education. A Web survey was used to collect distance learning faculty members’ input regarding instructional designers’ role at two research insensitive universities. The results revealed that (1) faculty members believed that working with instructional designers prepared them in the implementation of best practices in distance learning course design and delivery; (2) faculty members worked with instructional designers for multiple purposes, such as for technological and pedagogical support in the process of distance learning course design and delivery. However, seeking technological support was the major reason to work with instructional designers. Faculty members stated that they needed more assistance in pedagogical perspective; (3) faculty members preferred to work with instructional designers individually either in a face-to-face consultation session or via phone and email.
