Abstract: This roundtable discussion focuses on the practice of instructional design in post-secondary education as online learning becomes main stream in many colleges and universities. We will begin by exploring the role of an instructional designer and the expertise he/she brings to producing quality online courses. We will further discuss the tension and conflict that may arise from a designer’s interaction with an academic subject expert. Last but not least, we will examine instructional design practice from an institutional perspective – the change, the impact and the future.
