At Central Piedmont Community College, high demand exists for professional development opportunities during a time of reduced funding for guest speakers and external conferences. The College also faces new legislative mandates that put the College at risk if employees are non-compliant. To address these needs, Professional Development instituted the Professional Development Instructional Design Internship Program led by Shantell Strickland-Davis which introduces graduate-level instructional designers and media content developers to the field of instructional technology. Interns have a rigorous one-semester curriculum relating directly to instructional design concepts, theories, and multi-media development that yields high quality, interactive, on-demand online learning which faculty and staff use as a resource to meet their professional development goals.
