Summer 2020 ID Summit CFP

The ID Summit is an opportunity for instructional designers from institutions in the state of Utah to collaborate on and share resources, experiences, and ideas. The location is to be determined and we anticipate the date being early June. The in-person meeting will allow participants the opportunity to network with other instructional designers and receive new insights to apply in their day-to-day work.

Possible Topics for Proposals

  • Streamlining the Course Development Process
  • Evaluating Online Course Quality
  • Designing for Instructor Presence
  • Competency-based Education
  • OER (Open Educational Resources)
  • Leveraging Technology
  • Accessibility
  • Student Readiness
  • Learning On-the-Go
  • Innovation
  • Faculty Support/Development
  • Generating Student Engagement
  • Gamification
  • Using Data to Inform Teaching Decisions
  • Establishing Working Relationships with Subject Matter Experts
  • Collaboration with Other Instructional Designers, Animators, Videographers, and Other Support Staff

Delivery Options

There will be two types of sessions 1) poster session and 2) concurrent sessions. 

The poster session is intended to allow an opportunity for participants to share examples of the work they have done or research on other topics of interest. Informal, one-on-one discussion of the topic, design decisions made and implemented for the showcased projects. The poster session will last for approximately 45 minutes. Presenters are encouraged to prepare materials (digital presentation, video, website, print, or other) to share their work samples or talking points on the selected topic.

Concurrent sessions will run for 45 minutes and provide presenters an opportunity to share more in-depth insights on topics of interest, challenges and possible solutions. Sessions may be presented by a single presenter, small group, or panel. Presenters are encouraged to prepare for active participation by attendees. Attendees will be asked to bring a device (i.e. smartphone, laptop, tablet) to the summit.

Tracks

There will be a general track and a track for new instructional designers. The track for new instructional designers is intended to provide a general working knowledge of how one can be successful in a career in instructional design and would be appropriate for instructional designers with three or fewer years of experience. Topics might be administrative or organizational in nature.

Schedule

The basic schedule for the ID Summit will be as follows:

  • 9:30–9:45 Welcome and opening remarks
  • 9:45–10:30 Poster session
  • 10:30–10:35 Break
  • 10:35–11:20 Concurrent session #1
  • 11:20–11:40 Networking break
  • 11:45–12:30 Concurrent session #2
  • 12:30–1:15 Lunch
  • 1:15–2:00 Keynote

Criteria & Selection

Fall 2019 Virtual ID Summit

The Fall 2019 Virtual ID Summit is scheduled for Friday, October 25. Apologies for the late post on the blog.

This ID Summit, besides being virtual, is a little different than previous ID Summits. This summit will consist of “institutional highlights.” These highlights may cover a few different topics:

  • New instructional designers hired by the institution
  • Major projects or initiatives
  • Upcoming conference presentations or publications
  • Processes, tips, or strategies

We requested highlights and several institutions responded. The schedule is as follows:

  • 10:00 – 10:10 – Welcome and announcements by ID Summit Board
  • 10:10 – 10:20 – Highlight #1 – USU
  • 10:20 – 10:30 – Highlight #2 – Dixie
  • 10:30 – 10:40 – Highlight #3 – Weber
  • 10:40 – 10:50 – Highlight #4 – U of U
  • 10:50 – 11:00 – Highlight #5 – SLCC
  • 11:00 – 11:10 – Highlight #6 – SUU
  • 11:10 – 12:00 – Moderated, open forum discussion by ID Summit Board

UVU will be providing the technical and logistical support.

So we can best organize ID Summit we ask that participants register individually. However, we encourage instructional designers at the same institution to participate in the virtual summit together if possible. Registration is now open.

She will discuss three different lean processes games she has used including one where a sustainable version of the game was created to reduce waste. Additionally, she will discuss the use of an online Theory of Constraints (TOC) simulation (based on concepts from The Goal by Goldratt and Cox) and a popular operations game developed at MIT, The Beer Game. Finally, Alysse will discuss the plans for a new business integrative core class that will use the LINKS Enterprise Management [Enriched Edition] simulation tool.

“Improved student learning behaviors through gamified course design”

The sage wisdom of Mary Poppins gave us the following advice: “Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” What is the educational sugar that makes learning fun and enjoyable? What is the purpose of fun? How can we design fun into our courses? Even with a limited budget of resources and time there are strategies you can apply as instructional designers. In this presentation, we will discuss a variety of game design principles and aspects that can improve student learning behaviors and attitudes today.

If you haven’t signed up for ID Summit, please be sure to register.
