Drake Institute Instructional Redesign Cohorts are Forming Now

The Michael V Drake Institute for Teaching and Learning announces two new professional learning opportunities this fall.

Teaching Information Literacy Instructional Redesign Cohort [CL1] 

Asynchronous  delivery via CarmenCanvas with optional virtual cohorts on Oct. 19, Nov. 2 and Nov. 16 at 3 p.m.

This professional learning experience will provide guidance for strategically and purposefully integrating information literacy into courses.

Participants will be expected to complete 1 or 2 course modules per week (approximately two hours per module) and are encouraged to participate in at least one of the virtual cohorts. In each module, participants will complete activities designed to help them build an action plan for integrating information literacy into an instruction session, course, or program.


Carmen Common Sense Instructional Redesign Cohort

Tuesday, Oct 20 and Thursday, Oct. 22  11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

The Carmen Common Sense Instructional Redesign cohort is being offered during the Autumn '20 term as a two-session virtual workshop experience. Facilitated by Clinical Associate Professor Nicole Kraft, School of Communication, this professional learning experience will guide participants through the theories and practices of Carmen usage modeled in Carmen Common Sense with an eye towards redesigning the way they use the LMS to increase student learning and enhance student experiences.

For those interested in pursuing the IR process further, both of these experiences provide the foundation for an instructional redesign and assessment process culminating in the creation of an Instructional Redesign portfolio that may be eligible for IR compensation.

David Sovic, Coordinator of Instructional Redesign at the Drake Institute, will be supporting the courses and will provide information about the IR initiative. Full-time (.75 FTE and above) instructors are eligible to complete IR for compensation of $1150. Compensation eligibility renews every five years.
