This panel describes a Complete College Georgia initiative that helps academic programs engage in curricular changes and faculty development aimed at improving student success. In the Curriculum Design Academy, teams from designated programs review the principles of learning and work through the principles of course design. Programs subsequently submit proposals for curriculum change that are eligible for internal grant support. Courses targeted by the first cohort experienced an average 10 point decrease in percentage of students receiving a D, F or W. Presenters will describe the program, present evidence of its effectiveness, and feature projects from Chemistry and the Psychological Sciences. The session should appeal to administrators of CCG initiatives, faculty developers, and individuals engaged or interested in course- or program-level curricular innovation.
