CNDLS staff members, in addition to faculty and graduate affiliates, are engaged in advanced research on teaching practices, assessment techniques, instructional and learning design, media development, and technologies to enhance student learning. Whether rethinking course design, assessing curricula, or creating a dynamic digital archive, CNDLS works to align teaching practices with student engagement and learning. CNDLS is an integral part of Georgetown’s efforts to rethink the Future(s) of Higher Education and the Center has recently developed Georgetown’s new Master of Arts in Learning and Design, a program at the cutting edge of the future of innovations in teaching and learning in higher education.
