Using evidence to make course redesign decisions can be difficult when we are so invested in our teaching. Learn about the benefits and strategies for successful redesign with our special guest, Dr. Carolyn Jarmon, Vice President of the National Center for Academic Transformation. She's helped hundreds of faculty across the country redesign their courses for increased student retention and success while keeping campus budgets in mind. This one-hour session will help faculty, staff, and administrators better understand why course redesign is necessary for institutions in today's economic and academic culture of continuous improvement with less.
