Course Design Symposium - August 4 - 6, 2014
9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Course Design Symposium (CDS) is an intensive, multi-day, hands-on seminar that provides you the opportunity to experience the iterative, dynamic, and scholarly process of learning-focused course design.  Instructors are led through a structured process that allows them to create or substantially recreate a course from scratch.   As a participant you will explore learner-centered “backward” and “integrated” design principles and work on your individual course design in small focused learning teams. By the end of the institute, participants will have created the basic structure of a course including: clearly written measurable course objectives, assessment tools, evaluation rubrics, a course skeleton, and the draft of a syllabus.  Participants will also have the opportunity to formulate an informed teaching strategy (active, problem based, collaborative learning, flipped classroom) designed to enhance student learning.  Symposium registration limited to 15 participants.

Registration is closed.
