Beginning in June and continuing each month in 2010, the Flexible Learning Unit will hold Education Design Workshops. Each workshop will cover the theory concerning an element of education design and attendees will actively participate in application of the theory to their own courses.

How can I estimate the effectiveness of my teaching, and use the information I gather to improve it?

We ask that participants bring a laptop with a wireless internet connection.
