Fall Faculty & Academic Staff Workshops
Designing Your Own Course
This two-part intensive workshop, Designing Your Own Course, will help instructors create or significantly revise a course for an upcoming semester. This workshop will guide you in developing course learning outcomes, assignments, grading schemes, rubrics, low stakes assessment, active learning strategies, and a well-designed syllabus. Participants will receive the Learner-centered Course Design booklet with examples of each course design component. The result of this in-depth workshop will be greater intentionality and transparency in your design for learning and increased confidence that your course components are connected and coherent.
"Engaging Large Classes" Book Discussion Series
This fall, the Center for Instructional and Professional Development (CIPD) focuses on researched principles and practical strategies to incorporate assessment, active learning, peer facilitators, teams, and civility in large classes using the well-received book, Engaging Large Classes (Stanley & Porter, 2002). Each month, participants will co-facilitate and explore these chapters in four sessions as they develop or re-affirm their own understanding of how to engage students in large classes.
Assessment Showcase Winners Workshops
This fall, the Center for Instructional and Professional Development (CIPD) will host workshops based on the work of the winners of the 2013 Assessment Showcase.
