eDesign Collaborative


Welcome to the eDesign Collaborative (formerly the HEeD Association), now a part of UPCEA! The eDesign Collaborative serves higher education instructional design teams (instructional designers, multimedia developers and team administrators) in higher education seeking networking and professional development.

Higher education is currently experiencing a renaissance in eLearning and instructional design. The eDesign Collaborative's mission is to support and enhance higher education instructional design. Participation in the eDesign Collaborative provides access to a community of professionals who are interested in best practices for online course creation.
