This two-part Institute, Designing Your Own Course, helps instructors create or significantly revise a course for an upcoming semester. From minor tweaking to an extreme makeover, make a course your own by confidently making the changes that align your course components with your course outcomes and advance the level of student engagement and learning you have in mind. Participants will receive the Learner-centered Course Design booklet explaining the seven step design process through Part I and II with examples of each course design component. Through interactive exercises, we will begin using the design steps during the Institute. The result of this in-depth series will be your course well on its way with greater intentionality and transparency.
Part II will help you develop grading schemes, craft assignment criteria and rubrics, and embed low stakes assessments that help you determine earlier if your students “get it.” Consider active learning strategies from simple pair-share exercises to complex activities that encourage student responsibility and accountability. Finally, translate your course design into an evocative syllabus.
