Katie works with program directors, instructors, and subject matter experts to design and develop course content from module objectives to course assessment and everything in between. 

Questions Katie can help you answer:
  • How can I improve my discussions so that students explore a topic rather than end up at one conclusion?
  • Is there a way to streamline my grading?
  • I want my students to produce media to demonstrate a concept, rather than write another paper.  How do I get started?
  • Group work in my course is a jumbled mess!  Is there a way to manage groups and maintain a quality outcome?
  • How can I capture my students' attention on key topics in a time-efficient way?
