In-Person Track: May 16, 18, 23 & 25, 9am-12pm, Crosland 4160
Online Track: May 17, 19, 24, & 26, 9am-12pm, Zoom

Design or redesign a course with expert guidance from Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) consultants and input from colleagues across campus. This year we are offering two distinct experiences: Participants may choose between an in person track and an online track.

During the In-Person Track, participants will be guided through the backwards course design process as they develop or redesign the goals, assessments and learning activities for their courses. Each day will introduce course design frameworks and structures, create time for individual work, and facilitate sharing and feedback with colleagues. This track provides the most guided experience and may be best suited to those developing a new course and/or who are newer to the course design process. In-Person participants will also have access to the Course Design Studio Canvas site, which includes additional topics that may not be addressed during the in person sessions.

In the Online Track, participants will access asynchronous modules via Canvas that provide frameworks, models, and structured exercises designed to help them build course elements, including learning goals, assessments, and learning activities. This track offers the most flexibility for participants who are interested in exploring areas of course design beyond the fundamentals of backwards course design (though the basics are also fully addressed). In addition, participants will engage in synchronous collaborative sessions via Zoom to share their course element designs with colleagues and CTL consultants.

No matter what your previous experience with course design, the Course Design Studio creates time to think about your 2022-23 courses and opportunities to share your ideas and get feedback from colleagues. We hope these two options for participation enhance the value of Course Design Studio for both new and returning participants.
