Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) will act as contractors assigned to collaborate with an Instructional Designer. Instructional Designers are members of the Curriculum Development Team and report to the Director of Curriculum Development.
Preparing for the Kick-Off Call
Each SME should review the current course syllabus, competencies, course materials, and any additional materials sent from the Instructional Designer
Participation in the Kickoff call
To create a shared vision for the course, learning model, discuss special considerations, examine timelines/deadlines, and get started on mapping the course competencies.
Modular Content Production
The Content SME is responsible for creating original content (leveraging of external resources and content should be minimal, if at all) that can be leveraged for the following deliverables:
High-Level Design and/or Course Outline
11 or 6 modules of course content depending on the method of delivery.
Assessments, activities, and rubrics.
Storyboards and video scripts.
Supplemental content in support of learning outcomes.
Notes/answer keys/ teaching suggestions to be included as a Faculty Guide.
Producing Original Materials
As an SME, you are hired to provide your expertise in the subject area. As such, we are looking to you to provide original content and not only rely on the textbook, Internet, or publisher materials.
This content should:
Translate expected learning outcomes into instructional material that allows students to achieve weekly learning outcomes.
Meet Rasmussen’s course development style standards.
Be checked for accuracy and consistency of spelling, grammar, and other mechanical and style issues before submission.
Incorporate constructive feedback into online tests, exams, and quizzes. If necessary, provide feedback prompts to other non-objective assignments that instructors can use when teaching the course
The final delivery deadline for each course development is set prior to the kick-off call.
The Instructional Designer will provide a suggested schedule for the development for the SME to review.
The SME should be prepared to discuss any personal or professional time off that may alter the schedule (i.e. vacation time, work travel, personal time, etc.).
The final schedule will include milestones and delivery deadlines for the length of the development.
After each submission/milestone deadline, the ID and the DC will review the work submitted by the SME and provide feedback.
The SME must be available for a regularly scheduled feedback call with the ID and DC.
Time, frequency, and form of communication will be discussed amongst ID, DC, and SME.
The SME is most involved in the design and writing phase(which last 12 to 15 weeks) of the development, including:
Participating in the kick-off call
Creating a high-level design for the course and materials for the weekly modules.
