FAES Academic Programs Instructional Designers
Roughly 60 years ago, a group of NIH researchers established FAES to quickly train fellows on specific skills through face-to-face course offerings on the NIH’s Bethesda campus. Over time, our program has extended beyond the NIH community to include partnerships with local degree-granting institutions. Following the trends in higher education, we have transitioned our educational offerings to an online format. As a result, we are excited about the potential to provide rigorous and high-quality educational offerings to the NIH community throughout the United States and around the world.
Based on research and educational trends, eLearning has become a primary method for instruction, offering students autonomy for their learning paths. To build globally competitive skills and knowledge and to meet the requirements of our academic partners, our online courses provide the same level of rigor as accredited institutions to ensure synonymous content and transferability. Please find additional information here about our partnerships with several area universities where your FAES credits could count toward completing a degree.
Today, our online courses are developed cooperatively with instructional designers, who optimize learning technologies to employ best teaching and learning practices, and instructors who are experts in their field. However, the student has autonomy for acquiring the knowledge and displaying their understanding through dynamic learning activities. You will notice that FAES has replaced the traditional call and response activities with student-centered learning opportunities.
