Facilitated by Kimberly McArthur (Southwestern), Katie Ann Skogsberg (Centre), and Andrew Bell (Richmond)
The pandemic forced us to radically rethink our approach to course design. Incorporating flexibility helped make courses robust to disruptions and applying these pandemic lessons in flexibility can strengthen our post-pandemic pedagogy. However, managing flexibility poses a unique challenge when curriculum is sequenced and students expect a more traditional approach to assessment. In this workshop, they discussed models of flexible course design and assessment strategies. The workshop organizers presented examples from natural science courses, but the workshop was intended for anyone interested in flexible course design. They discussed best-practices for adapting existing courses, and participants (from all areas) added to a flexible course design “toolbox.”
