Educational technologies like digital courseware can help drive course redesign efforts in gateway courses, improving the quality of teaching and learning for faculty and students. When paired with quality course design and evidence-based instructional practices, digital courseware can support student engagement while enabling faculty to better understand and address student learning needs with data-informed instruction. The current marketplace for digital courseware is vast. Understanding where to start and how to evaluate, select, and integrate high-quality courseware into the classroom to best support faculty and students can be overwhelming. In this session, attendees will explore emerging courseware decision-making tools, gain strategic insights from higher education association leadership with extensive experience in supporting colleges and universities to effectively integrate digital courseware in gateway courses, and hear best practices from exemplar faculty and academic leadership on what quality implementation looks like.
