Abstract

Instructional designers perform wide variety of tasks within a university environment. This includes support for teaching, needs assessment, curriculum development, syllabus design, educational technology implementation, assessment, and evaluation. According to Ensminger et. al. (2004), instructional designers play a crucial role as change agents in the implementation of educational technology and products. As a field, instructional design is historically and traditionally rooted in cognitive and behavioral psychology. In this particular best practice session, practices such as collaboration, partnership, sharing, caring, and support will be explored as the basis for developing strong relationships as well as a missing link to the instructional designers world. Finally the role of the instructional designer will be discussed in relation to faculty status at the university.
