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

Wednesday, August 24, 2016
12:10 PM - 1:40 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.  Dr. Jennifer Weaver, Assistant Director at the CTLO, will be teaching a 4-session short course for faculty this summer. Faculty may invite a Head or Lead TA to participate with them (though not in place of the faculty). 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.

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

Please note that while we thank you for your interest, we have reached maximum capacity for this course (in fact, we are oversubscribed)! We will be offering a similar course for post-docs and graduate students in the Fall. And of course, hope to offer this course to faculty again soon. Please contact Dr. Jennifer Weaver for more information.
