We'll kick off this summer workshop series with an overview of backward design, a simple course design method that will help you ensure proper alignment of objectives, assessments, and activities within your course.
Your course doesn't happen in a vacuum-- your institution, your space, your students, and your own context all impact how your subject is taught and learned. This session focuses on identifying the situational factors that will inform the way you design your course.
Learning objectives are the foundation upon which your course activities and assessments are built. In this workshop, you will learn about ways to think about learning objectives and develop some of your own.
In this session, we’ll figure out how to choose assessments that not only measure whether students have learned but also help them learn in the first place. We’ll also discover that assessments can go way beyond the traditional exam, quiz, or term paper.
In this session we will talk about designing grading policies which support and motivate student effort and learning instead of using grades solely as evidence of achievement of learning outcomes.
We know that active learning is critical to student engagement and retention of material, but how do you make it happen? In this workshop, you will learn about ways to help your students actively engage with course material to achieve the learning goals of your course.
In this session, you will learn how to help your students think about their learning and develop ways to plan, monitor and evaluate their learning experience.
In addition to being a guide, a course syllabus can help you make your course more inclusive and accessible. You can protect yourself from scrutiny, convey expectations, and set boundaries, all at the start of the semester. Make the most of your syllabus by attending this workshop, where we'll analyze examples, talk about the must-haves, and consider best practices.
