CSU Transforming Course Design initiative

CSU Transforming Course Design initiative

The CSU Transforming Course Design initiative is based on previous work in higher education under a variety of labels, including most notably Academic Transformation (along with Learning Productivity, Comprehensive Course Design and others). These projects have extended traditional instructional design processes in significant ways, including the following key elements. 1) engaging teams of faculty and department leaders to insure sustainable course enhancements, along with team members from academic support units; 2) simultaneously addressing student success, quality of learning outcomes, and costs of instruction; 3) applying knowledge and resources from scholarly work in teaching and learning; 4) emphasizing assessment of student learning outcomes and sharing of exemplary practices. The website provides background information on Academic Transformation, case studies, and CSU's implementation strategies.
