In partnership with more than 150 colleges and universities, the National Center for Academic Transformation (NCAT) has shown how it is possible to increase student success and access while containing or reducing instructional costs.
If you would like to learn more about course redesign, an excellent way to do so would be to attend an upcoming NCAT redesign seminar. Participation is open to the higher education community.
