Hello Everyone!

I have been consulting with the new president of a small institution, on
how to create a college that generates high quality learning, high quality
teaching, within the long-term goal of continuous improvement.

*Question*:  Does anyone have or know of an *college or university* that
does a good job on *3 or more* of the following tasks:

   1. Has created *institution-wide learning goals*.
   2. Has a strong *faculty development program*.
      - With a high level of faculty participation, e.g., 50% or more of
      all faculty participating in a substantial activity each year.
   3. Has widespread *learning-centered teaching.*
      - e.g., using learning-centered course design, active learning,
      effective use of small groups, immediate feedback on student work - with
      rubrics, reflecting on their learning.
   4. Has most students regularly *reflecting on their learning*,
      - e.g., doing learning portfolios.
      5. Has most students learning how to become "*self-directing learners*
      - e.g., by learning how to create plans for their own near-future
      learning:  WHAT do I want or need to learn in the next 1-3
years?  HOW can
      I learn that?

You may send your response either (a) to this Discussion Group or (b) to me

I will be glad to summarize the responses I get, back on this
DesignLearning Discussion Group.

Many thanks!!

Dee Fink
