Instructional Leadership Academy: Course Design to Foster Student Success
January 6 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
The disruptions of the past two years have made it difficult, if not impossible, for instructors to slow down, reflect, and develop their teaching. This Academy is designed to give you the opportunity to do just that–with support and feedback from colleagues. You will engage in a series of interactive workshops that lead you through the process of designing (or re-designing) a course that challenges students while supporting their learning. Before each workshop, you will complete a short homework assignment that allows you to make concrete progress on your course. By the end of the Academy, you will have built the foundation for a course that engages students with challenging, authentic work; invites them into the thinking (and the excitement!) of your discipline; and provides a path to their success!
In order to ensure that all participants have the best possible experience, we ask that you commit to attending all six meetings of the Course Design Academy and completing homework assignments each day.
Participation in the Academy includes a series of workshops and ongoing support as you implement your new design.
