About Instructional Design@UCC

The Instructional Design team in UCC works within the Office of Vice President for Teaching and Learning. Our job is to support UCC to develop online and blended learning courses. We do this through consultation with Academic staff and provide advice about the application of technology to learning contexts.

The purpose of this site is to become a one-stop shop for all of your queries and needs about Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) in UCC.

On this site, you will be able to:

  1. Find answers to common queries around TEL tools such as Blackboard and Panopto;
  2. Ask questions about how to use technology to help with teaching and better facilitate learning, and
  3. Find out about current trends and ideas to do with TEL.

This site will grow and change based on your questions so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
