Instructional Design Services

What do Instructional Designers do?

  • Design instructional materials and courses.
  • Support the efforts of faculty, administration, IT, and others to achieve better student learning.
  • Teach instructors to leverage technology and implement pedagogy and andragogy effectively.
  • Assist instructors when they run into technical or instructional challenges

Our services are available to all instructors within the College of Engineering. We are available for collaboration throughout the year, at any point in the semester. Whether your need is big or small, we would love to help. Think of us as course-design coaches and tech-savvy cheerleaders who are here to support instructors so they can feel inspired about their teaching.

Success Stories

“Working with ETS has been instrumental to the success of creating our brand new online asynchronous course “Designing the Future” here at Ohio State.  Jessi and her team told us to “Trust the process” and we did!!  They led us step by step to create the course & videos that communicate to the students as well as the knowledge assessments needed to ensure content absorption. Without ETS’s guidance I honestly don’t know how we could have added this course to the network for ongoing education.  Thanks so much to the ETS team and Jessi in particular for their guidance and expertise!!”        --Frank Paluchi
