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.
- 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:
- Get to know each other.
- Verify term delivery requirement, contact information, and preferred communication style.
- Discuss the Option 1 design and development process.
- Discuss roles and responsibilities and ensure agreement.
- Discuss the preferred approach to the development process and ensure agreement.
- Establish a development schedule to ensure the course is ready for the term to be offered.
- Determine immediate next steps.
- Document highlights of the above will then be distributed to ensure a common understanding of the development process.
- The ID or IT will provide a status report of the course each month to include:
- Project start date, expected completion date, and project status, either "On-Track” or “In Jeopardy”.
- 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.
- A meeting will be scheduled with the ID&T point-of-contact and appropriate faculty. The initial meeting will:
- Ensure understanding of the project scope and how the course development process will proceed.
- Determine the necessary level of support and collaboration.
- How can ID&T assist?
- Aspects and Elements of Course Design and Development may be used to assist in this discussion.
- Verify that the term delivery requirement can be met by IDT available resources.
- The appropriate ID&T resources will then be assigned to the project.
- ID&T will provide a monthly project status report.
- Showing start date, expected completion date, and level of interaction with the project faculty.
- The project may be flagged if it is past the expected completion date.
