Through the Course (Re)Design Academy, I redesigned UNIV 220:àDecide and Confirm Majors, as a flipped classroom. For UNIV 220 participants, this will mean a streamlined, self-directed learning and life-design experience. For UNIV 220 instructors, it will yield a detailed course outline, complete with resources, pre-work, and ideas for classroom management. They will also have a map of what students should learn, and which activities or assessments support the learning ââ¬â a full context for their teaching. Instructors from all disciplines can see the outcomes of developing a course through a hands-on flipped learning environment, testing tools, techniques and strategies for teaching the course while creating a course outline, including Student Learning Outcomes, mapped to supporting course activities and assessments.
