• Heidi, thanks for your comprehensive post about project management and all the fabulous resources you shared. I, too, really enjoyed the article by Phare (2018) [url][/url]. Their system for allocating instructional designers time for projects makes perfect sense to me. Collaborating with academic department leadership to determine the needs for the course design and development work would enable some forethought and planning in the course development process. Instructional designers could act as project managers to coordinate the entire course development process with their team of graphic designers and developers. We usually have our faculty members act as course developers; therefore, they are more or less responsible for standing up their courses on time.
