Instructional Designers

Instructional Designers are e-learning specialists who work with faculty and other members of the GBC community to design online and blended learning environments. While they are not technologists, they can help with strategies for transitioning from on-campus teaching to off-campus, including the re-design of lesson plans, fostering engagement and exploring alternative assessment options.

Faculty Facilitators

The Faculty Facilitators at TLX are teaching and learning specialists who offer a range of supports to faculty. These include coaching, peer collaborations on special projects, consultations on learner engagement strategies, and exploring effective ways of integrating technology into the classroom. They can assist with strategies for managing classes at this time of disruption, selecting technological tools to sustain learning, identifying ways to engage students at a distance, and all-around moral support.
