December Course Design Intensive

Event Date & Time

  • December 9, 2015
    9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Event Description

The Course Design Intensive (CDI) is a 3-day workshop in which participants work, individually and collaboratively, to design or re-design a course they are (or will be) teaching. Throughout the workshop, participants will acquire a broadened understanding of course design concepts, and will gain skills and tools they can apply to their own course. The focus of the workshop is on having participants work with the major concepts and questions that need to be considered as they design a course. Ultimately, the goal of the CDI is to support instructors as they work to enhance their students’ learning.

Once you have completed the registration process for the CDI, a facilitator will follow-up with you two weeks before the Intensive to conduct a short interview in order to ensure to best meet your learning needs throughout the CDI.

Upon completion of the Course Design Intensive you will be able to:

1.  Approach the design of your course from a learning centered orientation.

2. Apply principles of alignment to develop learning outcomes and select aligned assessment methods and learning activities.

3. Assess various learning activities and technologies for their value in supporting the learning outcomes you have developed and propose how they may be incorporated into your course design.

4.  Engage in peer learning as a means of enhancing your teaching practice and student learning.
