The Research & Instructional Design (R&ID) team provides research assistance to faculty and students, and facilitates the use of information and technology in the teaching and learning process.
Research & Instructional Design
The Research & Instructional Design team is available to provide specialized instruction on topics such as library research, poster design, digital media creation, survey tools, mapping tools, citation management, and more.

Blackboard Mondays - Every Monday in the Couper Classroom at 4:10 PM, from August 28 through December 14, 2017, come learn about a specific feature or tool in Blackboard for 20 minutes. The floor will then be open to any question about Blackboard for 30 minutes. We're done by 5:00 PM. Learn how to use Blackboard more effectively, one tool at a time. Bring your questions, too!
Ask Us Anything - The more things change... the more things will continue to change. Drop by the Couper Classroom September 26, October 31, and November 28, 2017 from 4:10 to 5:10 PM.
