Create your Own Instructional Design Cohort
Our 2018/19 Design Menu has a variety of offerings that follow a learning design process: Get Inspired, Ideate, Design, and Exhibit. Choose a sequence that draws from each part of the process or pick the component that is most relevant to where you’re looking to expand your practice and spend time developing.

Join the fellowship of innovative Teachers & Leaders within a climate of creativity and innovation to brainstorm and begin the stages of the design process with time and support from the Learning Design Team
