REBUILD and the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching are talking to administrators, faculty, staff and students across the University about foundational courses. Our goal is to generate a shared vision and agenda for a program of collaborative course design to advance teaching and learning in foundational courses at the University of Michigan. Building on the Fall 2016 Provost’s Seminar “Transformed: Foundational Courses for a Third Century,” the Foundational Course Initiative Seminar Series features high-profile speakers who have extensive experience leading the transformation of foundational courses to incorporate innovative technologies, research-based pedagogies, systematic assessment strategies, and novel approaches to supporting the success of diverse students at scale.
We invite you to join us for the following event. You can register for the seminar or view our seminar schedule here.
from at the Michigan League (Henderson Room)Students as Partners in Redesigning Foundational CoursesWhat happens when we engage students as partners in the process of designing a course? This talk will explore research on and practices of student-faculty partnerships that have the potential to enhance, and perhaps even transform, student learning – and also both teaching and courses.
I hope to see you there.
