“Faculty professional development workshops are often top-down, designed and offered by the college’s administration with little input or feedback from the faculty themselves. Workshops are also isolated from the classroom: they provide participants with an opportunity to learn more about a topic or technique, but when or how the technique can be effectively applied in each participant’s own class remains unclear. 44 Furthermore, workshops are typically unaccompanied by additional structures to help faculty sustain and build on their learning across time. Taken together, the top-down, decontextualized, and short-term nature of many faculty development workshops conspire to create an experience that instructors characterize as “painful,” “boring,” and “insulting.” 45”

“Students generally liked the idea of grouping majors into areas of interest to help organize their thinking about potential paths.”

“Research from several domains suggests that colleges can improve student learning by mapping out programs using learning outcomes that are aligned with student goals beyond just program completion.”
