Option 1 and Option 2 Internal Procedures

Option 1 Internal Procedure

This procedure starts with the assumption that an instructional designer (ID) and an instructional technologist (IT) have been assigned to support the course development effort, with Option 1 being selected.

  1. The ID and IT will review the ID&T Course Development Support Request Form and will schedule the initial meeting with appropriate attendees. The purpose of this meeting is to:
    1. Get to know each other.
    2. Verify term delivery requirement, contact information, and preferred communication style.
    3. Discuss the Option 1 design and development process.
    4. Discuss roles and responsibilities and ensure agreement.
    5. Discuss the preferred approach to the development process and ensure agreement.
    6. Establish a development schedule to ensure the course is ready for the term to be offered.
    7. Determine immediate next steps.
  2. Document highlights of the above will then be distributed to ensure a common understanding of the development process.
  3. The ID or IT will provide a status report of the course each month to include:
    1. Project start date, expected completion date, and project status, either "On-Track” or “In Jeopardy”.
    2. If the project is "In Jeopardy", comments will be provided to indicate the reasons and how to get the project back on-track.

Option 2 Internal Procedure

This procedure starts with the assumption that the decision to use Option 2 for the course development has already been made.

  1. A meeting will be scheduled with the ID&T point-of-contact and appropriate faculty. The initial meeting will:
    1. Ensure understanding of the project scope and how the course development process will proceed.
    2. Determine the necessary level of support and collaboration.
      1. How can ID&T assist?
      2. Aspects and Elements of Course Design and Development may be used to assist in this discussion.
    3. Verify that the term delivery requirement can be met by IDT available resources.
  2. The appropriate ID&T resources will then be assigned to the project.
  3. ID&T will provide a monthly project status report.
    1. Showing start date, expected completion date, and level of interaction with the project faculty.
    2. The project may be flagged if it is past the expected completion date.
