Bringing flavor and variety to courses is often a struggle—especially if you’re teaching the same course multiple times and year after year. But change is important! It’s what keeps student engagement high and teaching inspired.

By taking some easy-to-implement, creative approaches to assessment development, learning objectives, and lesson planning, you can breathe new life into your courses.

Are you ready to get creative with your course design?

Register today for the Magna Online Seminar, Creative Course Design: Yes You Can!, presented by Kenneth Alford, PhD and Anthony Sweat, PhD.

From developing courses with clear objectives and outcomes to effectively creating authentic assessments and presenting lessons, this seminar will help equip you with the creative approaches, fresh perspectives, and practical tools you need to take any course from bad to good, or from good to great.
