Learn how to use course design to help student veterans

Military service is a formidable educational experience, according to presenter Bruce Kelley, Ph.D..

In this Magna 20-Minute Mentor session he shows you how to use course design to help student veterans make the most of it.

In the process, you’ll also learn how to enhance learning for all students.

Drawing on his experience as director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of South Dakota, Kelley also references higher education theory as he guides you through course design and redesign, covering:

  • Situational factors – You’ll look at the specifics of your course, such as how many students are veterans and how their military experience links to course content.
  • Assessment – You’ll see how the military and higher education both emphasize clarity, frequency, and feedback, promoting improvement.
  • Teaching and learning activities – You’ll discover how using terms such as “course mission” can help student veterans succeed.
