For faculty teaching a new course, the most common course design approach used by faculty is the content-centered approach (Fink, 2003). This approach uses a textbook table of contents or the expertise an instructor to identify topics to cover, designs lectures, activities, and assignments to teach, and assesses the student work completed. The content-centered approach simplifies course design but focuses mainly on content knowledge, which is the type of knowledge that is most easily forgotten (Fink, 2003).
This hands-on session helps participants design courses that move away from just content and design courses have the potential to impact students’ learning years after the course is over via two well-established course design models. Wiggins and McTighe’s (2005) Backward Course Design utilizes the old adage, begin with the end in mind. Fink’s (2003) integrated course design recognizes that instructors need to not only identify and consider situational factors in developing courses but also align the instructor’s learning goals, feedback, and assessment methods, and teaching and learning activities so they are integrated in a way that supports and reinforces each other.

Designing for experiential learning not only takes creativity but it also take time and collaboration. This session will focus on how I designed an experiential learning course on water and sustainability, what I learned from the process, and what I would do differently next time. I will discuss active learning strategies, budget, coordination of field trips, and collaboration with the local community and how this intentional design aligned with NSU’s experiential learning guidelines and the National Society for Experiential Education’s Eight Principles of Good Practice.

Understanding student development theory is crucial to our work with students both inside and outside the classroom. This workshop will introduce student development theory and how to apply it when building curricular and co-curricular experiences. Ale Matias will share how student development theory is rooted in the foundation of NSU's First Year Experience (FYE) Peer Leader Program.
