Instructional Design & Online Learning

Full Tilt Ahead makes online learning decisions based on best practices in pedagogically sound design, centralized strategy, creative engagement, technology integration, and inclusive teaching.

It was a wonderful experience to collaborate with Full Tilt Ahead’s professional team on this project. They seamlessly provided a full spectrum of services from curricular structuring, content building, and aesthetic design with the technical expertise to make it all happen. In addition, it felt like a truly creative collaboration with the team thinking independently, interacting synergistically, and introducing new possibilities to build my ideas into a final product that was more than I had imagined it could be.

Pedagogically Sound Design

Creating significant learning experiences is chief among our considerations for pedagogically sound design regardless of in-person, online or hybrid teaching models. This means that while we love technology, it comes second to ensuring that we always take a student-centered approach to learning rather than a content-centered approach.

FTA continues to help the University of Virginia’s Center for Teaching Excellence lead the way in helping faculty to build pedagogically sound courses using c3Design.

Online and Hybrid Learning Strategy

Many of our clients have been wading into the world of online learning for several years, but have not yet developed a centralized online learning strategy for their institution. We work with clients to build a custom infrastructure for consistent course design and development, orientation and training, faculty development and compensation, compliance, service models, workflows and tool integration. With growing capabilities for data mining, we also help clients learn how to apply learning analytics at institutional, programmatic and course levels.

Learning Tool Integration & Support

Faculty and administration are faced with a range of learning management systems and a wild landscape of technology tools to choose from to make learning engaging and interactive. Our experience can help guide you through the maze of learning tools evaluation, selection, implementation, training, and support.

Whether you are trying to introduce something that already exists or build something new and innovative that differentiates your teaching, Full Tilt Ahead can help.

Inclusive Teaching

Your students’ motivation and value expectation are closely tied to inclusion, diversity, and accessibility. That means that providing significant learning experiences requires reaching all your students. From finding the right resources to include in your courses to making sure that students with unique learning challenges can access those resources, Full Tilt Ahead can be the partner that helps design the most equitable learning opportunities.
