This pre-conference workshop is directly connected to the conference theme: Making Waves: Educational Disruptions and Transformations. As a group of Learning Designers working at Centre for Teaching, Learning & Technology at UBC, we will contribute to developing participants’ capacity and competency in designing a high quality course by sharing authentic examples of course transformation. Also, we would like to have a learning opportunity from the participants while discussing their struggles and successes in designing and delivering their courses with diverse course settings.
