Learners of 21st century are required to possess certain skills in order for them to succeed in their future career. Traditional teacher and student model is challenged due to changes in ways and amount of information acquired nowadays. Because many educators may not feel comfortable with the changes they may still follow their traditional format of teaching and information delivery. That causes gaps between what is needed by students and what is offered by instructors. Instructional designers are asked to bridge the gap by developing more appropriate instruction model for the success of both students and instructors. The presenter will reflect on her experience of supporting instructors with instructional design projects at a pharmacy college. The presentation will provide background information of the projects, introduce instructional design projects conducted, reflect on the projects including both project management and instructional design aspects, summarize the lessons learned, and plan for the future.
