This webinar features an award-winning 2018 OLC Effective Practice which was recognized at OLC Innovate 2018, April 18-20, 2018, in Nashville, TN.

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 teams,AIDNet members work with autonomy, agility, and a focus on collaborative efficiency. Each instructional design team within the network includes a senior instructional designer, online course developers, and instructional media specialist. This strategic coalition and scalable networked structure create 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.

This new personnel restructure is accompanied by the Course Design Xchange, an institutional "market economy" within which departments and faculty "purchase" applicable instructional design resources and/or services through five new course improvement programs (which have now been formally recognized, and adopted institutionally): CourseLaunch, CourseAssist, CourseConstellation, CourseSelect, CourseCertify. Offering these process-driven programs, in conjunction with leveraging Quality Matters (QM) and a variety of new technologies, has led to a highly-flexible, systems-approach to instructional design with ever-growing potential, both at MSU Denver and nationally. New relationships have been built, course improvements are being made equitably across the university, and a broader vision of possibilities is now shared between and among previously disparate departments and organizations.


This webinar is applicable to all educational professionals but would be of particular interest to instructional designers, administrative leaders, and other institutional change agents. Participants will gain insight into the processes and practices that allow instructional design and media development to thrive at scale within a large, urban, post-secondary university.
