[This is a face-to-face workshop only. Concepts apply to any type of course format. A Certificate in Course Design is available for those who complete the optional Certificate designs.]
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 through the self-paced format at: https://uwmil.instructure.com/enroll/H6YFRL

Once you have built a course’s outcomes, assignments, and assessments, and ensured alignment among them, you have a solid learning foundation in which to embed active learning and support the engagement of all learners. The first day of the semester or first in-class session are pivotal events in which you can begin to embed expectations of active vs. passive learning, provoke curiosity, and make it a safe place to think and learn out loud. In this module, you will learn how to design the essentials of active learning and engagement. We will examine and apply the four phases of Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle as a highly flexible framework into which you can embed any active learning strategy group work, mini-lectures with low stakes assessments, cases, pairs, case studies, reading, writing, etc., in order to engage and achieve higher level learning.
