Your faculty librarians, including your OER Librarian, Di Zhang, can help you find high-quality and appropriate OER for your course or curricular area.
Open Education at Renton Technical College invites students, faculty members and administrators to work together as we choose a culture of innovative instruction that leads students to complete their education with both quality and equity. We will increase student learning opportunities by embracing a culture of Open in all levels of our institution.
Note: OE Steering Group documents and reports are included in the "OER documents" tab above.
Instructional design is the use of learning and instructional theory to facilitate the best possible learning experiences which meet educational outcomes. Through analysis of learning needs and goals at each stage of the course development process, an instructional design team works to create courses where students and instructors reach their educational goals.
The instructional design work at RTC centers around the instructor working to design a course. Design work is centered on the student and the learning transformations we want to foster during the educational experience.
