Tune-Up Process

Our course tune-up program matches instructors with a course design partner to address a teaching challenge. The process is efficient and targeted at practical improvements to save time and teach well.




Share your needs and ideas

Fill out an online form. Share a few basic details about your course and provide a brief description of challenges and opportunities.


Meet with a design partner

We will match you with a course design partner who has skills and experience relevant to your challenge. Connect with your design partner to discuss your needs and opportunities. Your design partner will listen, take notes, and help map out the next steps for addressing your challenge.


Design a solution

After hearing your needs, your design partner will begin to gather information and resources to inform options. Depending on your needs, preferences, and the nature of the challenge, your design partner will offer a few preliminary recommendations or make a prototype for you to review and discuss. This is a flexible process built around your individual needs.


Make the solution

Your design partner will help realize the design by working with you to build your tune-up. This may include materials for Canvas, a teaching plan, videos, exam materials, etc.


Launch your solution

Your design partner will work alongside you to launch the solution while you work to engage with your students in a tuned-up course! Your design partner can also help you evaluate your solution’s effectiveness.
