Most courses don’t need to be rebuilt from scratch in order to feel fresh and inspired. In fact, sometimes just a few changes can make a course feel new and exciting again—no wrecking ball required.
That’s exactly what the Infusing Learner-Centered Strategies Into Your Course workshop is for. In just two days, three top faculty development professionals share the learner-centered techniques, strategies, activities, and assignments that will help you revitalize the courses you teach—and, in the process, give you renewed enthusiasm for teaching them.
The idea is to give you tangible tools and insights that you can apply immediately. When you are finished, you will be able to evaluate any course, recognize what could be changed, and determine how to make the improvements without the major effort and time commitment of redevelopment or redesign. Whether your courses need little tweaks or major overhauls, you will discover the approach and the strategies you need to make the upgrades you want with the time and energy you have.
