This program is an opportunity for faculty members to review, enhance and (re)construct one of their courses. Working alongside their peers, faulty members engage in activities that highlight essential course design principles and then apply those ideas to an upcoming course. This course redesign program is focused on meaningful assessment and evaluation and pays close attention to designing summative assessment tools that align with course learning outcomes.
