What do instructional designers do in higher education? A written symposium

Dempsey, John V. and Albion, Peter and Litchfield, Brenda C. and Havard, Byron and McDonald, Jacquelin (2007) What do instructional designers do in higher education? A written symposium. In: Trends and issues in instructional design and technology, 2nd ed. Prentice Hall, Upper Saddle River, N.J., pp. 221-233. ISBN 0131708058


What the five authors of this “written symposium” have tried to do is to give you a small window on their world in
higher education. The vignettes are written by Australians and Americans discussing five different job responsibilities instructional designers have in higher education. By organizing the roles of instructional designers into five common positions at the university level, the authors hope to give a glimpse of some of the day-to-day opportunities and some of the demands of their careers in higher education. The chapter highlights the similarities and differences among these job positions in higher education from the perspective of two countries with diverse traditions.
