Course Redesign Workshop

May 1st and 2nd, 2018 | 9:00 am – 4:00 pm | Room 913C (The CTL)

Do you have a course that is need of a major renovation? The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is excited to offer a two-day, hands-on workshop designed to support mid-career faculty in a course redesign. Did you miss the opportunity to participate in ITL or have been unable to commit to ETaL? This workshop may be what you are looking for. Bring an existing course and you will leave this workshop with the tools and plans to offer a completely renovated experience for yourself and your students.

The Workshop has the following components:

  1. Expression of Interest – with your registration, you will be asked to identify some aspects of redesign that you would like to work on. If you are not quite sure what you would like to work on, please register and the CTL can help you build a “renovation plan”.
  2. Pre-Workshop Preparation – you will need to gather some documents prior to the workshop: course outline, course curriculum elements sheet, program map/ program outcomes, additional materials currently used for course delivery (e.g. lesson plans, assignment instructions, course assessment tools, etc.). Preparation will also include review of resources in a Blackboard course.
  3. Two-Day Workshop – may include: Interactive activities, mini-lectures and exercises where participants will apply course design principles to a specific course. Participants will be given time, space, and resources to work on lesson planning for their redesigned course. Learning Designers will be on-hand to provide advice and support.
  4. Submission of Lesson Plans for feedback from Learning Designers.

Register early as this workshop is limited to 12 participants. The workshop will be applicable to all delivery modes – face-to-face, blended, and online.

Types of Redesign may include:

  • Aligning course and program outcomes
