Are you preparing to teach a course independently or designing a course for future teaching? This advanced-level workshop for graduate students and postdocs in the humanities, arts, and social sciences will guide participants through a “backward-design” approach to course design, which begins with identifying the knowledge and skills that students should learn in the course.
Participants will learn strategies for
Developing specific, measurable goals for student learning
Selecting and organizing course content
Aligning teaching methods, as well as assignments and exams, with course goals
Designing course policies
Registration is required, and seating is limited.
Presenters: Beth Fisher, Ph.D., Director of Academic Services, The Teaching Center and Bryn Lutes, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center
This workshop is part of the Pedagogies in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Workshop Series, co-sponsored by the Graduate Student Senate.
