Instructional Design

CIRT provides an array of instructional design services to support UNF faculty with the systematic process of designing, developing, and delivering instructional materials. The Instructional Design (ID) Team is available to consult on instructional design best practices, to assist in the conversion of traditional course materials to the online learning format, and to provide training and development related to the practical and pedagogical skills necessary for developing and delivering interactive and engaging instructional materials. Through our liaison program, we also strive to promote dialog between our team and the academic communities we serve.



The primary services provided by the ID Team include, consultations, course development, course review, faculty development, and a liaison program meant to strengthen communication between faculty members and instructional designers.
