Working with the millennial student requires educators to understand how to create and implement a learning-centered approach appropriately in their classrooms (Fink, 2013). Unfortunately, too many graduate programs arm their students with a strong knowledge base in their subject matter and research, but only provide limited or no pedagogical training, including knowledge of effective course design, assessment, classroom management, and content delivery (Robinson & Hope, 2013). Therefore, the aim of this webinar is to provide an overview of college course design, delivery, and assessment to graduate students and young professionals in the field of sport, exercise, and performance psychology. 

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to (a) articulate the value of backwards design for both instructor and student, (b) create learning outcomes for their courses that have a solid foundation for long-term student learning, (c) understand the importance of designing and using effective assessments, (d) identify how to create and use effective assessments to improve one's own teaching and the student's learning, (e) appreciate the relationship between content prioritization and high impact learning activities, (f) recognize the outcomes of high impact learning practices, and (g) understand the PRICELESS principles of high engagement learning activities.
