The Agile Instructional Design Network And Course Design Xchange
Concurrent Session 9
In 2015, the Instructional Design team at MSU Denver recognized a growing need to establish added structure and improved processes in order to meet the growing demands of online and hybrid education. In response, the MSU Denver Agile Instructional Design Network (AIDNet) and Course Design Xchange (CoDeX) was established. AIDNet represents a new practice, mindset, and organizational infrastructure supporting instructional design at MSU Denver. Consisting of dynamic, cross-functional, three-person teams, AIDNet members work with autonomy, agility, and a focus towards collaborative efficiency. Each instructional design team within the network includes a senior instructional designer, online course developer, and instructional media specialist. This strategic coalition and scalable networked structure creates an exciting design environment which stimulates ongoing creativity, productivity, and continuous process and product improvement. Teams are empowered, self-organizing, self-managing, and accountable for the delivery of results that consistently meet faculty needs and expectations.
