In supporting faculty with using technology in the classroom, having a conversation to identify their desired outcome and working backwards to determine the appropriate tools, support services, resources and procedures results in constructive, engaging instructional technology idea initiatives. The conversation between an Instructional Technologist and faculty to identify their goals mimics a reference interview, and the process of supporting and using the technology in the classroom replicates backwards design. This session will feature a summary of the use of the reference interview and backward design to implement an iPad project, a VR activity, and a VoiceThread enhanced course.
