Design for Learning
Designing for learning involves the intentional process of planning programs and courses, from aligning learning goals, to syllabus and assignment design, to providing meaningful student learning experiences, to online course site design. ATL offers resources for each step of the learning process in every modality and Faculty Development and Online Education team members are available for consultation, depending on your design needs.

Faculty Development and Online Education team members are available for consultation, depending on your teaching needs.
Program assessment refers to the collection, review, and use of student learning information for the purpose of continual improvement by monitoring the impact of the curriculum on student success. The Assessment team supports all phases of the assessment process, providing templates, resources, and consultation services.
