Welcome to the Learning Design Services site, developed to articulate the many possibilities faculty have to interact with the Learning Design Team. Our goal is to move away from a simple transactional interaction with faculty to one that focuses on creating a transformative teaching and learning experience for Baylor faculty and students. In part, the LD Team believes strongly that transformational teaching and learning is a journey that is best fostered through positive one-on-one collaborations with faculty and other key stakeholders across a number of topics. Our services build upon our mission statement:
Baylor's Learning Design team cultivates a culture of innovation and curiosity through meaningful engagements with Baylor faculty that in the end will “...educate men and women for worldwide leadership and service by integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment within a caring community”

Through group workshops, individual consultations, and other events, our instructional designers help faculty and graduate students develop content for fully online and hybrid courses in keeping with sound pedagogical practice. We also create media-based instructional components for classes. Take a look at some of our initiatives.Academic Technology Learning Design Fellows Program
