Abstract for the conference program

As an inclusive collaboration of higher educators, the Innovative Course-building Group at Georgia College uses civic issues and active pedagogies as a catalyst for designing engaging courses that result in important student learning in the STEM disciplines and beyond. In this session, we will present examples of new and redesigned courses along with lessons learned from our faculty-learning community. After a brief overview of our activities, session participants will actively explore and share techniques for designing sustainable, innovative courses. Exercises will focus on the teaching cycle (goals, assessments, and reflection) for participants to develop concrete strategies to engage and enhance students’ critical thinking and problem solving skills in their own courses.
