  • Learn teaching and learning scholarship to improve your courses.
  • Articulate the most important goals that you have for your students’ learning and how to best structure your course activities and assignments to meet those goals.
  • Develop strategies for understanding what your students have learned and how to use this information to make your courses even more dynamic and effective over time.
