Course Design Fundamentals: Planning the Schedule and Course Content

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.

In this workshop we will focus on the strategies for the delivery and distribution of course content in both large and small classes with a focus on estimating course workload for both students and faculty. We will conclude with a focus on how to plan an efficient and productive semester schedule.

Special Follow-up Workshop: The CTE is collaborating with Office of Information Technology in a follow-up workshop on April 2nd from noon-1pm in the Symonds II room in Duncan Hall. Hajime Kumahata and other staff from the OIT will lead a workshop on using Canvas for course schedules, course organization, and course content. This will be an interactive session and participants are encouraged to bring questions. No RSVP needed.
