Create Your Pathway: Personalized Learning for Design and Arts

Session Description
How can you meet the needs of undergrad and graduate students? What about students taking 1 credit vs. 6 credits? What if they come from five different colleges? What if they are all working on different projects throughout the course? These are the challenges we faced as we designed a way to meet all of those needs in an online courses that will need to scale to over 4,000 students. In this session you will learn about our efforts to construct online courses designed to help design and arts students achieve these goals by personalizing learning while maintaining quality and consistency in the coursework through the integration of online learning best practices. You will explore the processes and challenges we engaged in to create a large scale, modular course experience to support a diverse community of design and arts students. This session is intended for audiences of all experience levels. While the focus of this experience is design and arts curriculum, this framework could be applied to any discipline.
