This workshop is for leaders of programs considering how to redesign a program to include a project spine (project classes embedded in the program of study) and/or reduce the program’s number of courses/credits.  A goal of implementing a project spine will be to reinforce student learning and skill development as students’ progress through the program of study.  An overall reduction of the number of credits/courses required to earn the degree will also be a design goal.
