Teacher Coaching Programme Workshop 7: ABC Course Design

23 May 2022

Colleagues from the University of Geneva together with Sustainable Caucasus continue a series of webinars with the participation of the representatives of higher education institutions from the countries of the Caucasus Mountain Region.

Professor Jörg Balsiger introduced ABC Learning Design. ABC builds on well-known insights into how students learn, some of which will be covered in the “Learning-centered teaching” learning unit. It incorporates the principles of constructive alignment but goes beyond to also address cross-course or cross-program themes and institutional policies. 

At the end of this learning unit, participants will identify and understand the key notions underpinning an ABC approach;  plan and implement an ABC Learning Design workshop and apply the ABC approach to a new or existing course.
