In this presentation participants will learn from the experience that the faculty of the School of Instructor Education at Vancouver Community College went through to redesign the well-known Provincial Instructor Diploma Program. The redesign started with an internal and external program evaluation, and from there a visioning session and curriculum mapping exercise with much input from stakeholders. This session will focus on the process but will also cover the challenges faced and lessons learned.
