Keith has facilitated or co-facilitated workshops to help more than 80 campuses design, implement, and assess their curricular approach. He has done these as two-day in-person retreats as well as a series of virtual workshops spread out over four half-day sessions.
If you are looking at moving your curricular approach forward a virtual curricular retreat is transformative. It will also help refocus your thinking of how to do this curricular learning model with your students.
This virtual format is the place to start your journey. It is structured intentionally and to be very helpful. People will feel that this meets their needs and allows them to not take so much time away from your position–in a 2 day retreat. This format better allows participation.
This virtual workshop was engaging and interactive and broken into four 3-hour chunks. The pace was quick but we were still able to cover everything our university was looking for. Definitely a great option.
Keith has been one of the leaders in developing curricular approaches to learning beyond the classroom in higher education.
He is co-author of this new book on the curricular approach released in June 2020.
He regularly serves as a faculty member for ACPA’s Institute on the Curricular Approach (formerly Residential Curriculum Institute). He chaired the Institute in 2009 and co-chaired in 2018 & 2019.
He is co-author of this peer reviewed article on designing, implementing, and assessing curricular approaches.
Keith also offers on-going curricular support for campuses he has worked with via monthly campus calls and group calls as they develop their approach, whether they are in year one or year 10.
The sessions have been tremendously insightful and helpful. This is truly one of the most impactful professional development opportunities we have had for Student Affairs as a division. What has been the best part for me? Applying curricular structure to our own areas. Attempting to actually translate the ideas to an action plan helped the ideas crystallize in really powerful ways.
