Marshall Teaching & Innovation is about the intersection of world-class teaching and learning with technology. With the world’s shift into utilizing technology more as an aid in collegiate instruction, engaging learners wherever they are has become a priority. Being able to operate and thrive in this new environment successfully is crucial to our students’ success. Marshall’s Teaching & Innovation team have the tools and the skills to work with our expert faculty to ensure that our professors can reach their students’ hearts and minds, whether it is in-person or through a computer screen.
We feel that learning is less about technology and more about engagement with the coursework and professors. Many Marshall courses consist of both asynchronous and synchronous course work. Asynchronous activities can include presentations, moderated discussion boards, case studies, simulations, educational games, self-assessment exercises, and other online instructional content that can be completed at each student’s convenience. Synchronous, scheduled activities can include live video class sessions, webinars, facilitated team meetings, one-on-one feedback sessions, and other real-time interactions. Professors are also available via regularly scheduled virtual office hours and email. The same is true with our residential courses as well as Marshall’s online degree programs.

INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN BENEFITS
Instructional designers use specialized knowledge and skills to create engaging and effective learning experiences. They are experts in: learning theories, curriculum design, course development, and learning technology. Instructional designers support courses and faculty by providing best and innovative practices in online teaching pedagogy.
Instructional Designers put their expertise in practice by doing the following
Instructional designers identify the important learning goals and outcomes, organize material, and scaffold learning and work with faculty on innovative teaching practices. Learner-centered approaches are not simply about designing a course. They emphasize inclusive and equitable design principles to make sure no one is left out and all perspectives are explored.
Instructional designers collaborate with faculty to determine the best methods to deliver instruction - whether it is online or in-person, synchronous or asynchronous. The strategies they employ are backed by research and informed by experience.
Instructional designers partner with professors to design a variety of learning interactions, lessons, and exercises that guide learners through new information and building on existing knowledge. Core concepts are introduced and built upon; learners not only understand, they apply and create.
Instructional designers produce or oversee the production of multimedia learning materials such as podcasts, videos, asynchronous case study scenarios, etc. They leverage the newest technology tools available to bring interactive video and robust simulations to our students, while also providing the tools and guidance to faculty to assess whether real learning is taking place.
EVALUATION + ASSESSMENT
Instructional designers create assessment and evaluation activities to measure learner progress and effectiveness of course material. These are more than just multiple choice exams. Instructional designers work with professors to develop innovative forms of assessment using application of core concepts taught in the course to real life situations. Evidence of this learning doesn’t end when the course does, it threads through the entire program.
