There has been a paucity of research exploring the perceptions of academics and the role of Instructional Designers (ID’s). ID’s, as change agents, have traditionally been involved in the nexus between academic content, delivery of content and student learning. The relationship between academics and designers has often been problematic. Consequently this investigation explores the changes in the way academics perceive the role of instructional designers (ID’s). This paper uses similar survey questions to that of Roberts et al. (1994) and Macpherson and Smith (1998). The major findings included: Academic author s who worked in a collaborative team with an ID perceived the experience to be easier and less time consuming than on an individual basis and ID’s should be located within the faculty in order for them to understand the context better. In addition, academics strongly agreed that the role of the ID was to provide guidance in the use of media.
