Whether you are rethinking your course from the ground up or just tinkering with an assignment or two, this is the workshop for you!! In a thoroughly hands-on session, we’ll help you explore your course ideas by:

  • Exploring new strategies for course activities and assignments that develop student processes of research and analysis, information literacy (seeking, evaluating, and applying information legally and ethically), and collaborative work with student peers.
  • Crafting and tailoring your ideas and expectations to assignments and assessments.
  • Improving the connection between your assignments and your grades.
  • Examining your course fit with the learning outcomes of your department.
  • Constructing a syllabus that moves beyond the basics to establish a climate of interest for your students.

Using a “backwards course design” and tested assignment solutions, you will have the opportunity to reconsider your course with these three common focuses: research, information literacy, and collaboration. The workshop facilitators will be on hand to help you design or redesign courses, activities, assignments to promote student learning in these three areas.

Bring any and all of your syllabi to work on as time permits; we’ll also be on hand to arrange future individual consultations.

~Continental Breakfast will be provided, so please RSVP~
