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.

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.


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.
