State and System Course Redesign
Course Redesign Initiative (2010 – 2013)

The Governor of Missouri and Missouri’s public four-year institutions established a major course redesign initiative, in partnership with the National Center for Academic Transformation (NCAT), built on the successful models and lessons learned from NCAT’s course redesign programs. The goal was to achieve improvements in learning outcomes as well as reductions in instructional costs by redesigning large-enrollment, multi-section courses using technology-supported active learning strategies.

Building on lessons learned in the Program in Course Redesign and the Roadmap to Redesign, the Missouri CRI program demonstrated how colleges and universities can redesign their instructional approaches using technology to achieve cost savings as well as quality enhancements.
Redesign projects focused on large-enrollment, introductory courses, which have the potential of impacting significant student numbers and generating substantial savings. Each project fully implemented its redesign during the fall 2012 term.
