Understanding by Design

The Understanding by Design framework is a model for developing curriculum “backward” from the "Big Idea", to outcomes, to activities. We can help you get stated mapping out your course using this framework.

Get started with resources on UBD at iTeachU.uaf.edu where you can find a template and examples.

 

Workshops, consultation and training are available from UAA Faculty Technology Center.
