How can you design or redesign a course with a focus on improving student learning? This workshop for un-tenured, tenure-track faculty will approach course design via the “backward-design” model, which begins with identifying what students should learn, and be able to do, by the end of the course.
Participants will discuss specific strategies for
Learning about the students who are likely to take the course
Establishing course goals and objectives
Structuring the course
Designing a sequence of assignments and assessments
Using a variety of teaching methods
Presenter: Gina Frey, PhD (Executive Director, The Teaching Center; Florence E. Moog Professor of STEM Education, Chemistry; and Co-Director, CIRCLE)
