-Specific approaches to course design you can take to increased retention and completion.
-Practical insights on how to improve your online teaching, based on cognitive science and instructional design. Approaches to the assessment of learning that help students succeed.
Three Key Takeaways
-We can do much more to ensure student engagement and completion, but it requires us to make effective use of the practices of instructional design and the knowledge from cognitive learning research in the way we design, deliver and support students.
-We can ensure, but it requires us to think and design carefully our courses so that they are focused and aligned with key program level outcomes.
-We can foster rigour and quality, but this requires us to teach effectively and adequately prepare our students to perform well on out assessments.
