Service Summary

The Division of Instructional Technology's (DoIT) instructional design team offers a variety of services and expertise to faculty teaching courses at George Mason University. The team supports faculty in these four categories:

    1) face-to-face courses (100% of class hours offered in a traditional classroom setting)
    2) technology-enhanced face-to-face courses (100% of class hours offered in a traditional classroom setting incorporating technology)
    3) hybrid courses (51-99% or more of class hours offered online)
    4) online courses (100% of class hours offered online)
Our primary goal is to assist faculty in designing effective e-Learning. We accomplish this goal by continuously evaluating new instructional strategies and technologies for effectiveness, and introducing best practices to enhance the curriculum. Instructional designers assist professors in the following areas:
    1) design and development
    2) training and technology tools
    3) technology support
    4) resources for the development of their courses
Instructional designers also provide and direct faculty to other instructional technology resources supported by DoIT. Training and support are available for Blackboard Courses, the university's learning management system, Blackboard Collaborate, and many software applications including MS Office Suite and Adobe. Additional distance education resources are available through other DoIT units including GMU-TV and Collaborative Video Technologies.
