Course Redesign

In Fall 2010 Southeast launched its Course Redesign (CR) Initiative.  The CR process, which follows the National Center for Academic Transformation (NCAT) model of Course Redesign, focuses on increasing active learning and student learning outcomes with the help of current and new technologies.  Course Redesign is in its second year as an AQIP Action Project at Southeast with fifteen courses currently undergoing the Course Redesign process.
