Photo gallery: Rethinking Course Design is a community effort

Associate professor Gordon Rintoul (biological sciences) was one of many faculty participants at the Rethinking Course Design workshop in late April.

How can courses be reimagined to improve student learning and experience? That was the question tackled by a group of more than 25 faculty members and Teaching and Learning Centre staff participating in the four-day Rethinking Course Design workshop on April 25, 26, 29 and 30, 2019.
