We’re back for the new academic year with a conversation about course design. Our director at the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology, Claire Lamonica, is teaching a class of freshmen for the first time in more than a decade. We discuss her expectations, her concerns, and how she’s building her unique course. We also explore the importance of “letting go” when we find ourselves using the need to cover course content as an excuse to avoid innovation.

Learn more about LinC and the course design ideas Lamonica discussed on the show page for this episode.
