CASL Digital Education Collaborative (C-DEC)

Would students in your program or discipline benefit from repetition and practice of core concepts? Would they master concepts more easily, if given additional opportunities to apply or generalize their knowledge? Would they perform at higher levels, if given easy access to prerequisite course materials? If so, then consider C-DEC, a CASL initiative aimed at student success.

The goal is for disciplines or programs to develop shared digital resources, accessible to all UM-Dearborn faculty and students. The C-DEC resource will consist primarily of series of modules containing short video lectures and quizzes. Modules will be developed with the goal of being easily incorporated into Canvas course sites.

Currently the Biology, Mathematics, and Psychology disciplines are developing short videos to supplement existing course content and support student learning. During the 2020-2021 academic year, Art History, Sociology, and English Literature will begin developing C-DEC materials.

As you develop digital course materials and/or convert courses to remote or online formats, please keep these questions in mind:

  • How can existing C-DEC materials contribute to your courses and support student learning?
  • How can the materials that you are developing contribute to the C-DEC repository?

Please contact Marie Waung at mwaung@umich.edu with questions about C-DEC.
