Course Redesign – Year 1
English Composition I and Success in College and Life course redesign teams worked with the Acting Curriculum Specialist weekly to revise their courses from November 2014 through May 2015. During that time they participated in a series of professional development sessions focused on learning theory and best practices in curriculum design.
The teams worked collaboratively throughout the course redesign process to incorporate effective learning strategies grounded in learning theory for underprepared learners into their courses in order to improve successful course completion.

Faculty Training on Revised Curriculum
After the English Composition I and Success in College and Life course revisions were complete by May 2015 the course redesign teams developed the faculty training on the revised curriculum.
In June of 2015, the English Composition I course redesign team presented numerous training sessions on the new revised curriculum to the English full-time and adjunct faculty.
In July 2015, English full-time and adjunct faculty were also offered the make-up online revised curriculum training course for those who could not attend the on campus revised curriculum faculty training sessions.
