A Global Online Institute for Higher Education Instructional Teams

Higher education institutions around the world are being asked to make student learning more active and relevant. What does that mean for instruction? How can instructors transform their teaching? How can research inform new practices in ways that are practicable in your own setting?

This program introduces participants to innovations in teaching, and builds their capacity to rethink and revise their curricular and instructional practices. It offers an opportunity for teams of colleagues to explore and apply new methods of pedagogy and assessment in their institutions.
