The Faculty Center would like to recommend the book Learning That Matters: A Field Guide to Course Design for Transformative Education to interested faculty. Learning That Matters focuses on designing an academic course in a way that motivates, challenges, engages, and affirms students as active citizens. It has proven to be a valuable resource during the Learning Design Institute, a learning community focused on integrating the science of learning and learning design into the classroom. It is available as an ebook through FLITE’s Smart Search System.
