In this session, faculty from Virginia Tech’s University Libraries will talk about the lessons they’ve learned as they establish and grow the Learning Design Studio, an instructional design space to support university and library faculty. Whether you are making instructional content for yourself or creating it for others, this session will focus on advice and strategies that you may find useful for your future projects. The presenters will share practical suggestions and frameworks that have proven useful during the building of the studio and working with some of its first clients, including management details related to aspects like the service model and partnership agreements, as well as technical details such as the tools they use and how the instructional content is stored in the newly-launched Odyssey Learning Project repository.
What you’ll learn:
- Practical advice for creating studio spaces to support instructional design
- Tips for developing instructional design workflows and processes
- Lessons and best practices based on our successes and failures in working with clients and developing workflows
- Best practices for developing a team of both instructional designers and librarians
- Ways that you can incorporate a studio mindset even if you do not create a physical studio space
