CSU Monterey Bay to apply Course Redesign for technology and information literacy

A joint project team from the CSUMB Library and the School of Information Technology and Communication Design will be developing a course redesign for CST 101, a course in technology and information literacy. The team plans to reduce sections of CST 101 from 13 to 5, and cut the 23% F/W rate in half.
