Learn about Instructional Redesign

Instructors interested in the Drake Institute’s Instructional Redesign program are invited to a series of events this autumn that will introduce them to the program, its goals and outcomes, requirements, incentives for completion and colleagues who have successfully completed an Instructional Redesign portfolio.

Two Redesigning Instruction faculty panels have been scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 24 and Thursday, Nov. 12. Each panel will showcase three successful Instructional Redesigns by faculty from various disciplines who will discuss their teaching problem, the evidence-based instructional strategies they implemented and assessment techniques.  

For instructors seeking additional information about assessing Instructional Redesign, two workshops have been scheduled on Tuesday, Oct. 6 and Wednesday, Dec. 2. When instructional strategies are redesigned to promote student learning or enhance the student experience, assessment supports reflective teaching and development of a rationale for teaching practices. These workshops will introduce participants to methods for measuring the effectiveness of instructional redesign and provide the opportunity for considering, developing or refining assessment.

Ten open consultation sessions have also been scheduled from September to December during which Drake Institute staff will be available to introduce the program, discuss evidence-based strategies and resources, assist in pathway identification, and support consideration of classroom or learning assessment techniques.

Instructors can register for any of these events here.
