“The instructors are incredible. The knowledge they possess and their ability to communicate the information to us in a meaningful way with clear precise steps for applying the course materials is modeling the significant learning I want in my own courses. The book is a wonderful and has dynamic information in it.”

“Thank you for the course. It was really nice to see a quality online course that I can try to duplicate. The information and quality of the delivery was really impressive and I hope others will take your course to get the benefits I have received by taking it.”

“This book is a great resource for Higher Education instructors willing to challenge their traditional strategies and practices… It promotes self-reflection on current teaching approaches, and helps faculty understand, through illustrative examples, how the adoption of integrative strategies leads to significant learning experiences. In parallel, the reader is guided smoothly through the major steps of integrated course design: from using the taxonomy for significant learning to assessing and reflecting on the teaching and learning procedure, passing by defining and aligning the course outcomes with the learning and assessment activities, communicating effectively, making the course accessible and integrating learning technologies. It is undeniably an inspirational and enlightening work… not to be missed!”
