Getting Started Webinar Held on February 11, 2014

Getting Started on Course Redesign was a webinar for those of you who are thinking about beginning a large-scale course redesign project. This two-hour-long webinar provided participants the opportunity to learn about how redesign efforts have begun at both four- and two-year institutions. NCAT Redesign Scholar Teresa Overton from Northern Virginia Community College described how their redesign of developmental math, impacting almost 10,000 students, got started and how they resolved problems that arose. NCAT vice president Carolyn Jarmon gave examples of what has been experienced by four-year institutions in a variety of academic disciplines as they began their redesigns.
