I just heard about the idea of "enduring understandings" and thought I'd share some resources that have been helpful. This website from the Pedagogy Resources at the University of Alaska Fairbank (UAF) has lots of great info! From a brief explanation of the concept to applying the ideas in your course (including considerations for online) - I'm excited to think more about what this looks like in my day-to-day.

Attached below is the UAF Understanding by Design Tree, a tool to help in planning your course as a way to help identify what you expect students to get out of the course and how those “results” will be distributed between assignments and scaffolded through course content.
