“Faculty members at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro experiment with a model for course redesign they say can increase access and quality and lower costs.” — Carl Straumsheim

UNCG’s Craft Project was featured in Straumsheim’s August 17, 2016 article in Inside Higher Ed, an independent journalism organization that works to ensure the fairness and thoroughness of higher education coverage. The project focuses on redesign of courses according to design principles under the acronym, CRAFT (Create and curate content, Replace lectures with Active, and Flipped, Team-based learning). The project targeted general education requirements and courses with high rates of students withdrawing or earning a “D”, “F”, or an incomplete.
