The Instructional Design Summit sponsored by Utah Valley University’s Office of Teaching and Learning is a gathering of forward-thinking Instructional Designers who want to regularly share ideas and best practices.
- Advocate for effective teaching and learning.
- Collaborate on and share resources, experiences, and ideas.
- Review and recommend appropriate integration of technology to meet instructional goals.
- Serve as a repository for instructional resources, training, and materials.
- Act as a clearinghouse for current research and best practices in teaching and learning.
Open to anyone interested in instructional design, educational technology, and evolving pedagogies.
Dr. Kirsten Butcher was kind enough to provide the slides for her presentation “Designing Digital Assessments for Deep Learning.” We will update this post if other slides become available.
The University of Utah TLT staff have also made recordings of the presentations available:
