Are you the only ID at your institution?

Dear Colleagues,

As part of the ID2ID peer mentoring program led by Penn State and Educause, my colleague and I are seeking input from other colleges & universities around distance education policies and growth.  We both work in small institutions and are examining  best practices for expansion of online courses and programs.   As we both are the only instructional designers in our respective institutions, we are hoping to learn from other higher ed institutions that are similar in scale.  We have created a survey for instructional designers who are the only ID at their institution in order to understand the challenges and practices that sole IDs experience in their role.

If you have 5 minutes to provide input, we would greatly appreciate it.  Also, please feel free to send this survey on to any potential participants.

You can find the Survey for Departments of 1 Instructional Designer here.

We greatly appreciate your time and input.
