CTLO's 2nd Annual Summer Short Course for Faculty: (Re)Designing Your Class

Thursday, August 24, 2017
12:10 PM - 1:50 PM
Location: Center for Student Services 360 (Workshop Space)

Do you teach a class that you're considering redesigning, re-engineering, or rethinking? Maybe you've taught it before and it needs a little sprucing up, or maybe it's new and you're starting from the ground up.  The CTLO will be offering our second 4-session short course for faculty this summer. We'll walk you through the renowned process of "backwards design" from start to finish, including clarifying learning outcomes, designing assignments and exams, building the overall class structure, and fostering an inclusive classroom. By the end of the four sessions, you will have a solid plan for your class, with constructive feedback from the CTLO and colleagues.

Last summer's participants commented that "It was a wonderful, supportive and open environment in which to re-evaluate my own approach to teaching", "I really enjoyed teaching [this past quarter] and I think that the short course that you ran helped with that" and "this was one of the most (if not the most) useful class I took for years. I really feel that I learned something helpful, I could apply and use easily".

 

This course will run for four Thursdays: August 24th, August 31st, September 7th and September 14th from 12:15-1:45pm. Lunch will be provided.
