Program in Course Redesign

University at Buffalo (SUNY)

Course Title: Computer Literacy
Contact: Carl Alphonce

The University at Buffalo redesigned its Computer Literacy course to promote active learning both individually and collaboratively and to provide much more individualized support for students. The course redesign involved decreasing the number of lectures per week from three to two and replacing them with Web-based collaborative learning projects and tests as well as face-to-face assistance in a flexible lab environment supported by undergraduate learning assistants. The University at Buffalo considered two redesign strategies, one expected to result in a 54% cost reduction ($134 less per student) where enrollment stayed the same, the other in a 60% cost reduction ($149 less per student) where enrollment increased. The results of the completed redesign can be found by following the links listed below under Final Report.
