This seminar in the Certificate in University Teaching series explores how the incorporation of instructional design principles into instruction enhances success in reaching expected learning outcomes. The session begins with a brief overview of learning principles (what is learning and how does it work?) and instruction (how can instruction be designed so that it facilitates learning?). The overview will be followed by a review of a variety of higher education cases, focusing on the nature of the learning in each case and what the instruction might look like. We will end with a debrief session emphasizing how you might go about critiquing and enhancing your instruction to more fully engage your students and help them achieve expected learning outcomes. The seminar is led by Jerry Edmonds, Senior Assistant Provost for Academic Affairs.
