NCAT has launched a new series of free webinars. Each hour-long webinar features an NCAT Redesign Scholar, the project leader of a highly successful course redesign, describing the redesign project with a particular focus on its distinguishing characteristics. After a presentation, the lead faculty member is available to answer questions and provide additional specifics about the redesign.
Each of our spring 2013 webinars reached maximum registration well before they were offered. Each hour-long webinar will occur at 1 pm eastern time:
- September 10, 2013: Redesigning the developmental math program at Northwest-Shoals Community College presented by Crystal Ingle, featuring modularization and mastery learning.
