About Instructional Design

Course Design & Development

With a focus on Inclusion, Instructional Designers from Academic and Emerging Technologies (AET) are here to collaborate with instructors on creating inclusive learning environments with technology. We value learner variability and respect diversity, equitable access to learning and engagement opportunities.

Whether the goal is adding web enhancements to your face-to-face course, developing new or adaptive features for mixed delivery, or transforming a face-to-face course to fully online delivery, we have expertise in evidence based best practices and have many resources to help along the way.

We provide a continuum of course design and UC Merced supported educational technology assistance to Instructors, Teaching Assistant, students and staff.
