NCAT Redesign Scholars Program
How to Apply
Redesign Scholars include both faculty members and administrative staff who are experienced and knowledgeable about how to implement large-scale course redesigns that improve student learning while reducing instructional costs. Please see http://thencat.org/RedesignAlliance/ScholarsProgram.htm for a description of the responsibilities of a Redesign Scholar.
It is important to remember what NCAT means by course redesign. Course redesign is the process of redesigning whole courses (rather than individual classes or sections) to achieve better learning outcomes at a lower cost by taking advantage of the capabilities of information technology. Course redesign is not just about putting courses online. It is about rethinking the way we deliver instruction, especially large-enrollment core courses, in light of the possibilities that new technology offers.
