Designing Learning for Students’ Futures

Posted by stephanie rogers on January 26, 2021 in News

Post-secondary institutions often focus on the first-year transition into university and retaining students once they arrive. Faculty members and staff are regularly called upon to redesign their teaching and learning practices to help address these concerns. However, little attention is paid to helping students transition out of university.

How do our programs prepare students for their futures beyond academia?

This studio course provides an opportunity for faculty to consider supporting student success in their role as educators and disciplinary experts.

We will tackle questions such as: What should a course incorporate to foster student success beyond the university? How can program design support students’ post-university aspirations? What is the role of teaching and learning in promoting students’ future successes? Who defines success?

Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their courses and program and share some of the ways they use their teaching opportunities to support student success.

To participate in the course, please complete the registration form. There is an enrollment cap of 20 participants, with priority to those enrolled in the Faculty Certificate Program. Those not enrolled in the program may still register and will be notified on a first-come-first-served basis if a seat becomes available.
