About the 'Design Thinking Series'
Teaching is more than presenting a concept and asking students to demonstrate that they can repeat it back to us. Arguably, the most important goal of teaching is to spark that dynamic interplay of curiosity, exploration and engagement that results in learning. This series looks at the online learning environment from multiple perspectives, all aimed at giving you the ideas and tools to design effective instruction that engages your students and turns learning into success.
