Room 313: The ABCs of CBE Course Design

Recognized as a CBE best practice model for Ohio (ODHE 2016 Annual Report), Sinclair Community College received full HLC institutional accreditation for its current and future CBE programs in 2017.  But how did we get to this level?  This session focuses on three core elements of Sinclair’s CBE course design: Alignment, Branding, and Course framework.  Additionally, participants will see examples of how faculty and IDs can use storyboarding to assist in CBE course design.  Come experience the ABCs of CBE course design that you can use to begin, or build upon, your own CBE knowledge!
