Evolving teaching and learning

How can I improve my redesigned course?

Each time you teach a course you will identify areas of potential improvement. Continued assessment (e.g. student surveys, charting student performance, student evaluations) will assist you in detecting additional enhancements. Remember you don’t have to implement changes on your own. Your campus partners can help you with many aspects of the redesign. Some examples of common collaborations that could be beneficial in addressing your course redesign goals are:

  • KU Center for Teaching Excellence to help identify pedagogical solutions to course obstacles and assessment design ideas or to determine whether the course redesign interventions are working or need further tweaking. http://cte.ku.edu/
  • KU Center for Online and Distance Learning (CODL) to consider and implement instructional technology solutions for enhancing engagement, new ways to design the learning environment, and to tools for gathering student learning analytics for further development and revision of the course. http://codl.ku.edu/
  • KU Libraries for help designing research assignments and to identify instructional resources available to you. http://lib.ku.edu/services
  • KU Writing Center to help design writing assignments and implement timely supports for the writing process. http://writing.ku.edu/support
