The Beauty & The Beast: Redesigning Introductory Courses with the Best of (Active) Blended Learning

     Center for Teaching Excellence

12:00-1:30 PM


Scott Roberts, Ryan Curtis, Department of Psychology


Maryland Room, Marie Mount Hall


There is often a large demand for our introductory level courses, and it is challenging to make those courses enriching and engaging experiences we want to deliver (the beauty) without creating a course that cripples your department's resources (the beast). We will present a pilot redesign and evaluation of a large introductory psychology course, in which technology was utilized to increase active learning rather than replace it. As an added bonus, we were able to offer this redesigned course with a 50 percent reduction in the number of teaching assistant hours typically required to support the course.
