Proposal Abstract

This presentation is designed to share and explore our experiences in course redesign and transformation. A variety of course structures and subject areas within the social sciences will be addressed. Course redesign was begun as a method for promoting an environment conducive to student learning at a large, research extensive university. Redesign involves challenges for both students and faculty. Shared with the participants will be (1) classroom, active learning, and technology activities that have been incorporated into courses; (2) role changes and challenges for students and faculty; (3) assessment practices that can inform student and faculty growth and success.
