Course Design and Student-Centered Learning

Course Design DiagramStudent-Centered Learning

This student-centered perspective is a hallmark of the CSUDH approach to teaching. We strive to empower instructors by helping them develop a deep understanding of how students learn, so that they can effectively apply and adapt teaching strategies to meet their own goals and their students’ needs.

Course Design

Assessments should reveal how well students have learned what we want them to learn while instruction ensures that they learn it. For this to occur, assessments, learning objectives, and instructional activities need to be closely aligned so that they reinforce one another.
