February Course Design Institute

February 8, 2022 | 10:00am to 3:00pm

In early February, the Institute for Teaching and Learning will offer a Course Design Institute (CDI) to support instructors seeking to redesign (or design) a course for the summer or fall semester OR for submission as a General Education course. 

A CDI is an intensive experience in which Ohio State instructors are introduced to a “backward design” process, as well as strategies to encourage significant learning. Participants receive the tools and strategies necessary to build or rebuild effective, student-centered courses. Most important, the CDI creates the time and space to concentrate on the work itself in the company of colleagues and educational developers.

This CDI comprises five synchronous sessions and guided design work outside of the sessions using course materials and activities. Participants and facilitators will meet from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. via Zoom Tuesdays starting February 8 and going through March 8. 

This CDI is a pathway to Instructional Redesign, and eligible participants will also leave the experience with all the information they need (and much of the content) to complete an IR portfolio. 

To reserve a spot in the CDI, complete this form.

Institute for Teaching and Learning programming is offered in accordance with university guidelines associated with in-person and remote activities. The Institute will inform registrants of delivery modifications should those guidelines change.
