There has been a change in the program for the second hour of the upcoming ID Summit. Instead of a faculty panel discussion we will have Dr. Richard West from BYU present. The title and abstract for his presentation are listed below:
Creative Instructional Design: Principles for Improving the Creativity of Our Design Teams
By definition, designing should be a creative act. However, many of our instructional designs do not feel very creative to our users, or often ourselves. This is not too surprising as most organizations and teams are not very good at injecting creativity into their work because this is a very challenging thing to do. But just because it is challenging does not mean we could not strive to do better. In this presentation, I will discuss a few of the insights we know from research into group and social creativity, and provide a few suggestions for how we might use these research findings to improve the way we work, design, and live.
If you have not signed up for ID Summit yet, please to so ASAP.
Our summer ID Summit is scheduled for July 12. We will be hosting it at UVU’s Orem campus again. Here’s our tentative schedule:
10:00 – 11:00, Poster Board activity
11:00 – 12:00, Faculty Panel discussion
12:00 – 1:00, Lunch and presentation of poster boards
1:00 – 2:00, SLCC presentation on Accessibility
A special thanks to SLCC for their willingness to present. If you are interested in attending, please sign-up!

We are pleased to announce two additional sessions of the Spring 2013 ID Summit:
“A scenario-based approach to learning in Canvas”
Chase Mitchell, Snow College
Abstract: Engaging students in the learning process is paramount to good instructional design and in this presentation I will demonstrate multiple ways of utilizing the engaging method of “scenario based learning”. Through the use of simple features in Canvas as well as more sophisticated external tool options you will see examples, and learn ways to better engage your students and assess their understanding.
“Effects of personalized email and telephone campaigns on student retention”
Jason Findlay, Danny Young, Richard Marwedel
Abstract: We will present the effects of personalized email and telephone campaigns on student retention. Based on their lack of online activity, students were contacted either by phone or email in an effort to provide for them encouragement, accountability, and support in their online classes. Metrics used include the time it took students to first login to their class, and students who failed to submit one to three assignments by the due dates. The effects measured were course completion, grades earned, and subsequent online class registration.
