More than ever, instructors are being asked to document their student success and retention data. Pearson offers support for instructors interested in quantifying the impact of our learning technology resources. Each one-hour session will include a brief overview of student data collection by a Pearson team member followed by a presentation from a guest educator who will share his or her personal experience with student data measurement and the ongoing impact it is having on his or her teaching and students' learning. Each session will conclude with a Q&A period.

Course Redesign is the process of restructuring the way the content of a course is delivered. It generally involves the redesign of an entire course (rather than individual classes or sections) to achieve better learning outcomes—often at a lower cost. This is most often done by taking advantage of the capabilities of technology to deliver effective online teaching and learning experiences.
Visit the Pearson Course Redesign website to learn more about how Pearson can support you in your efforts to redesign your course through a variety of workshops, virtual communities, and Pearson solutions designed for your redesign needs.Back to top
