Instructors should make sure students have the opportunity to build their own learning experiences, New Mexico State University Professor Julia Parra argues. She said that one of the ways she implements active participation is through participatory course design in some of her courses, where students take part in brainstorming what the course will look like. She takes the approach of co-designing. After Parra has combined her learning goals and objectives with that of her students, she gives it back to them, and asks them for their ideas for the activities and resources that they could do in the course and assessments. In the end she builds the final syllabus based on their suggestions.
