Are you preparing to teach a new course, looking to redesign assignments or assessments, thinking about integrating active learning in your course, or considering revising your course learning goals? If so, we invite you to join us in a hands-on course design workshop on Thursday March 31st from 9-11am in Herring 129.
Over two hours faculty will apply research-based teaching and learning principles to designing a new course or elements of their existing courses. We will begin by exploring learner-centered design principles in a large group setting after which participants will break off into smaller working groups organized around specific course design goals. Participants will be able to chose from among the following breakout sessions:
- Refining learning goals
- Assignment (re)design
- Collaborative and cooperative learning activities
If you are interested in participating please RSVP here.
Coffee and pastries will be served. This workshop is open to all instructors at Rice University.
