This session will chronicle a design process that positively transformed the teaching with technology faculty development model at a large public California university. In alignment with several high-profile initiatives related to student access and academic success, teams of faculty were given the creative challenge of reinventing a course lesson using a variety of academic technologies. Faculty embraced the task with creativity and humor as they created course content, student engagement activities, and comprehensive assessments. After experiencing the Extreme Makeover: Course Edition challenge, faculty indicated they felt revitalized, with a renewed sense of professionalism and a commitment to transforming their teaching.


OUTCOMES: Learn how to develop intrinsically motivating faculty development models * Learn how to incorporate instructional strategies based on universal design principles * Develop creative strategies to overcome resource and morale challenges * Explore lessons learned and potential "gotchas" * Align institutional priorities and initiatives with faculty development goals and designs
