The research on change in higher education suggests that, in some settings, change only becomes likely when a significant minority of the faculty already has begun implementing change. A two-day, forthcoming conference, co-sponsored by the Institute for Law Teaching and Learning and Salmon P. Chase College of Law, Northern Kentucky University, will allow faculty interested in change to make changes to their courses right now. The conference is entitled “Course (Re)Design” and will be held March 18-19, 2011, at the Salmon P. Chase College of Law in Highland Heights, Kentucky.
The conference will be of greatest benefit to professors confronted with teaching a new course and those who would like to reinvigorate their approach to a course they have previously taught.
By the end of the conference, participants will have engaged in
- setting course goals and learning objectives,
- designing formative and summative assessments,
- choosing teaching and learning methods, and
- selecting and creating teaching materials.
