Topic: Mastering the Master Course Model

Description: With a focus on improving outcomes through ensuring a high-quality course design, master courses are one way to ensure courses are designed using best practices.  Working with instructional designers and subject matter experts is one thing, but how do you actually manage and deploy the master courses to “live” courses with students?  This presentation will take a dive into some of the things to consider when developing your processes for assigning master courses to live courses each term.
