Transforming a Course toward More Learner-Centered Teaching

Facilitator: Terry Doyle (FCTL)

PDI: $400

Description:

The goal of this Faculty Learning Community is for faculty to leave the community with a complete learner-centered course that is ready to be taught in Fall 2008. Participants will work together to adopt specific learner-centered teaching methods, and classroom activities, assignments, and assessments. The community will also discuss how to give students a greater role in their own learning and how to get them to take greater responsibility for their own learning. This community will focus squarely on preparing to use principles and practices of learner-centered teaching in a Fall 2008 course.
