ID Team Update: Q2S Transition

May 2016

Instructional Design & Educational Technology Team Mission

The mission of the Instructional Design and Educational Technology Department is to guide and support the development of standardized curriculum in a pursuit to provide equitable and consistent student experiences despite the location or delivery method of one's program. This unit strives to maintain curriculum that is rich, relevant, and dynamic.

Current Action:

  • We have already begun meeting with programs to discuss the Q2S transition. If you have not scheduled a meeting or been in communication with an ID please reach out to us to schedule a meeting; our calendars are filling up fast!
  • When are you ready to discuss Direct Measures for semester courses, let your ID know so we can include Anne Lansberry in any meetings.
  • 100% of all Program Outcome reviews have been completed!
  • The ORBIT to My Files (Blackboard) transition: ORBIT will be going away. We are only transitioning materials that will be used in the semester format. We will not be moving SLO documents, Learning Plans, or Faculty Guides as these will not be applicable in the semester format. Please complete the attached form no later than May 16, 2016 and email to id@baker.edu (full instructions can be found on the form). ORBIT to My Files Transition Template
