Can course design empower preparation for a specific course, while also creating learning experiences transferable to other courses? Join leaders P. Kimberleigh Jordan (Drew Theological School) and Hussein Rashid (Barnard College) for refreshments and conversation about how one might pursue both goals with integrity.
