UPDATE: This event was one of many that was cancelled when Rice closed during Hurricane Harvey. Instead of rescheduling, we will cover this material during our second course design workshop, scheduled for September 21st.
Over the 2017-18 academic year the CTE will offer a series of six one-hour workshops covering course design fundamentals. The series is organized to provide participants with the tools to design a new course from the ground up or redesign an existing course. Participants can choose to attend all workshops in the series or select individual workshops that best fit with their current course design goals. Workshops are open to all faculty and course instructors.
Course Design Fundamentals: Introduction to Backward Design
The series will begin with an introduction to Backward Design principles that will provide the foundation for the rest of the workshops in the series. This workshop offers the opportunity for faculty to reflect on and discuss their teaching goals in their courses and programs.
