Learning Design Services

Welcome to the new Learning Design Services page. This page has been developed to articulate the many possibilities faculty have to interact with the Learning Design Team. The goal with the service catalog is to move away from a simple transactional interaction with faculty but to one that focuses on creating a transformative teaching and learning experience for Baylor faculty and students. In part the 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. This service catalog builds upon our newly developed mission statement.
