In this six-module series of Essential Course Design workshops, you will gain the knowledge and skills to design all course components and the syllabus. You may choose to apply this knowledge to create a new f2f, online, or blended course or modify aspects of an existing course. We will have exercises in each module for you to begin to apply each design concept to one specific course. Please bring or have access to the course that you will use as your application context during the sessions. You have the option to fully complete and submit each step to achieve the Course Design Institute Certificate at the completion of the series or at any time.
Each module will build off of prior designs in each module so attending all modules is encouraged but not required. You can view missed modules at: in the self-paced format at: https://uwmil.instructure.com/enroll/H6YFRL

Module 4: Traditional assessment practices emphasize high-stakes exams and perhaps quizzes. Making student learning visible to students and ourselves as they learn enables us to clarify, ensure all are learning, and address misconceptions that may block higher learning. We’ll consider examples of low-stakes assessments, including during active learning, lectures, and online discussion, and how to ensure we’re getting assessing the intended learning. We will examine how to create all components of a rubric to increase equity and transparency as students learn as well as to assess student learning. Finally, we will compare traditional grading schemes frequently used to those that support an active learning role of students.
