Instructional Design and Innovation Center

Interested in exploring innovations in teaching and learning? Using a new technology? Redesigning your instructional activities? The IDIC is here to help. The mission of the Instructional Design and Innovation Center (IDIC) at Red Rocks Community College is to guide and support faculty and staff to integrate technology into the classroom.

The staff is knowledgeable in instructional design – the practice of organizing instructional media and content to help learners and faculty transfer knowledge more effectively. We have compiled a number of resources to help as you develop and teach your courses.

The IDIC Lab is available with educational technology for all faculty and staff to use multimedia equipment and lecture capture facilities.
