Sprintensive as Transformational Pedagogy – Breakthroughs and Challenges

Our sprintensive-session-springerThursday, April 7th Deans’ Seminar convening featured colleagues from the Sprintensive team. Their FFI-funded curricular experiment takes advantage of block scheduling to drive inter-faculty and cross-curricular integration and collaboration in a feedback-rich learning community for students.

Reflections from each of four faculty members on the challenges and breakthroughs they had personally experienced while working within this three-weeks-per-module intensive learning format were preceded by an overview of the structure and features of the program by Beryl Levinger:
