A group of faculty from Arts and Sciences who are developing new degrees met for a 2 days in March for a workshop on program-level curriculum design. 

Some of the topics were covered were:
  • SWOC analysis
  • Designing courses for significant learning
  • Student personas, graduate attribute, program learning outcome
  • Mapping the student learning experience
  • Trends in Higher Education, engaged pedagogies, and high impact practices
  • Credential innovation
  • Backward design
  • Constructive alignment

If you are developing a new credential or undergoing program review and want the CTE to facilitate a similar session, please contact us.
