Course Design Institute
During the CDI, participants review and apply selected materials from the institute’s reading list. Our reading list comprises texts instructors might find valuable whether designing a new course, redesigning a course or considering how to better support students using evidence-based instructional approaches.
During a Course Design Institute, participants gain an understanding of how to design a course based on a foundation of goals and outcomes; begin the actual work of course planning, working with a community of peers; and leave with the basic structure for a course and the beginnings of course materials such as a syllabus, assignment drafts, assessment tools and a course outline.
Participants who successfully complete a CDI will be able to:
- Articulate and align course goals and learning outcomes in a given course.
- Design appropriate and effective evaluation and assessment tools for select learning outcomes.
- Make discipline specific decisions regarding course content.
- Organize content to support student achievement of learning outcomes.
- Evaluate which pedagogical tools and teaching styles will be most appropriate for the context, goals and outcomes of an individual course.
The CDI is a 5 day event that runs from 12:30 - 4:30 p.m. on the following dates: Sept. 8, 15, 22, 29, and Oct. 6.
