Instructional Design Support

Want to engage and motivate students in the learning process?

Instructional Designers in the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning can assist with course design across all modalities; face-to-face, technology enhanced and online.

We are here to support you in the creation, facilitation, and evaluation of effective and engaging instructional approaches that result in meaningful learning experiences for your students.

Working with an FCTL Instructional Designer can help you with:

  • Using instructional technologies that enhance student learning
  • Engaging students with high-impact learning practices
  • Developing and revising online courses or degree programs
  • Mastering effective online teaching strategies
  • Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
  • Creating accessible course materials
  • Culturally responsive teaching
  • Deterring plagiarism and cheating
  • Using Open Educational Resources (OER's)
  • Assessment strategies that measure learning outcomes in meaningful ways
  • Best practices for student success

Want to know more? Contact the FCTL fctl@missouristate.edu and request a meeting with an Instructional Designer to discuss any of these topics and your goals for the design of the courses you are teaching.

Greetings!!

My name is Stacy Rice and I am the Senior Instructional Designer for the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning. I have been with Missouri State since fall of 2014. A native of Missouri, I started my professional journey at OTC, where I was a Blackboard Administrator, faculty trainer, and per course instructor. After 10 years at OTC, my husband and I moved to Bentonville, AR, where I took a position as the Lead Instructional Designer and Blackboard Administrator for the community college.

I have been at this "online education" thing for quite awhile now. I even prefer online as my own mode of learning because I was a better student in this environment. I have a M.Ed. in Educational Technology, an Ed.S. in Instructional Technology and (fingers crossed) will complete my Ed.D. in Adult Learning and Higher Ed. Leadership this fall.

I have been described as a "crazy dog lady"...mostly by family and friends . I enjoy traveling and concerts, something I hope to get back to in the near future.
