Description

This session will focus on implementing the Andrews University Unified Framework of Outcomes at the course level. Participants are encouraged to bring their course syllabi and departmental curriculum map. We will use a backward design model to handcraft courses using goals as the first step in the planning process. We will show effective ways to measure understanding as the second step and will provide some ideas of course activities that will engage students in meeting the course and institutional goals. The backward design model can be applied to all courses (graduate and undergraduate).
