Resorces for the CSU


Project: Transforming Course Design

The CSU Transforming Course Design initiative is based on previous work in higher education under a variety of labels, including most notably Academic Transformation (along with Learning Productivity, Comprehensive Course Design and others). These projects have extended traditional instructional design processes in significant ways, including the following key elements.

  • Engaging teams of faculty and department leaders to insure sustainable course enhancements, along with team members from academic support units;
  • Simultaneously addressing student success, quality of learning outcomes, and costs of instruction;
  • Applying knowledge and resources from scholarly work in teaching and learning;
  • Emphasizing assessment of student learning outcomes and sharing of exemplary practices.

Project: Early Assessment Program

The Early Assessment Program was established to provide opportunities for high school students to measure their readiness for college-level English and mathematics in their junior year, and to facilitate opportunities for them to improve their skills during their senior year.
