    Faculty Effectiveness: Enabling Modern Course Delivery at Scale

    Good teaching advances student engagement, equity and inclusivity—and this has a disproportionate impact on student outcomes. We’ll discuss how institutions can reduce fragmentation around course delivery to create learning experiences that are more personal, engaging and consistent. We’ll also explore the ways institutions are enabling the agents of change—faculty—to deliver against this vision.
