The Office of Instructional Design & Delivery supports the instructional design and delivery needs of faculty engaged in teaching and learning of online, hybrid, and traditional courses. To this end, professional development and support is provided for effective pedagogical practices and instructional software.
Mark your calendars and plan to attend the annual faculty development day on Wednesday, August 22,
High Impact Educational Practices (HIPS) are teaching and learning practices that have been widely tested and shown to be beneficial for college students. Descriptions of each HIP is available from the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U). The format this year will involve keynote speakers on why HIPS are at the forefront of conversations across USM, how institutions are implementing them and how using HIPs have been shown to lead to better outcomes for students. Following the keynote, faculty will engage in a World Café style of discussion to exchange ideas and learn all about how HIPs are being implemented here at SU.
Register for Faculty Development Day and join us as we explore what HIPs are, how we utilize them at SU and within the USM, and how we can move HIPs to the forefront of our work with students.

Each year, National Distance Learning Week, sponsored by the United States Distance Learning Association, is held across the country as a way to increase "awareness and appreciation for distance learning" in arenas ranging from education to business and government sectors. Join us as we celebrate National Distance Learning Week with several events and information.
Captured an in-class session with Panopto? Recorded an online lecture? Using instructional videos as the heart of your content? If you answered Yes - then the next question is Do they have closed captions or transcripts?
If your instructional video does not have closed captions, then help your students by requesting captions or transcripts to ensure your instructional videos become ADA compliant. Closed captioning is not only for those requiring accommodations but are also useful for all students, including English Language Learners and those you might be viewing videos without the audio (such as in the library).
