Strategies for Designing and Redesigning Courses
Drawing upon the concepts of scholarly teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning, one of the best approaches for increasing learning and overall successful teaching is to design a course to include research and evaluation for helping a professor determine what helped and hindered student learning. This session will present and discuss course design methods and strategies that help to increase a teacher’s ability to evaluate the course and make effective changes for enhancing learning. Participants will be equipped to apply these strategies to their courses.
