Instructional Design Team

The instructional design team at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is ready to assist in the design, development, and delivery of academic courses. Instructional designers consult with faculty regarding content delivery, learning assessments, and increasing student engagement. They partner with faculty to complement their content expertise with pedagogical best practices to provide students with the best overall learning experience.

Every fully online and blended course is paired with an instructional designer from the team. Please take advantage of this person's expertise and support to improve your course offerings!

CTL’s instructional designers also support on-site and hybrid courses on a consultation basis. Some great reasons to reach out to a member of the team might be to:

  • Reflect on your overall course plan

  • Rework or revise your assessments

  • Integrate more active learning strategies and improve your course activities

  • Learn more about the benefits or applications of a CoursePlus tool in your course

Please contact the Assistant Director, Learning and Innovation, Kathy Gresh, if you would like to work with an instructional design partner.
