ON COURSE RENEWAL WORKSHOP
Helping educators renew their understanding of On Course principles and acquire new best practices
Designed for educators who have previously taken an On Course workshop, the On Course Renewal Workshop offers an opportunity to identify successful practices integrated from the On Course Toolbox, then refine their design and facilitation. Drawing from shared new best practices, and the latest research in student success, you’ll have an opportunity to reflect, re-learn and renew your understanding of the On Course principles. You’ll also troubleshoot persistent classroom challenges, cement new learning, acquire new active learning structures, and renew your relationship to your students, colleagues and the field of education.

I found the On Course Renewal Workshop a superior active learning experience to jump start the semester with energy, renewed and innovative ideas, and a purposeful time to collaborate/share with colleagues. This workshop was a solid example in lifelong learning, self-motivation, employing interdependence and getting on course for fall.–Mary C. Belknap,
