Catalyst Course Design Program
The TCLT offers a course design/redesign program for faculty to use to refresh or retool their teaching. The program utilizes the work of Dee Fink (Creating Significant Learning Experiences, 2013), and encourages the use of high impact practices, experiential and active learning strategies, and reflective assessment.
