Course Design Studio
Partnering with WCU faculty to support creative thinking, ideation and collaboration
The agile course design learning studio in the Coulter Faculty Commons is where faculty have access to an array of kinesthetic tools for designing courses and lessons, based upon their own idiosyncratic needs, aspirations, and evidence-based practice for “what works” in higher education settings. The inclusion of kinesthetic modality supports creative thinking, ideation, segmenting and sequencing (Malamed, 2011) and collaboration with faculty peers, educational developers, and instructional technologists, and the studio will also function as a site for independent faculty work and development.
