The Center for Teaching and Learning will again offer the annual Course Design Institute (CDI), a week-long program that guides participants through the process of developing effective, inclusive courses. Instructors who are new to course design, and those who have participated in previous CDIs, are invited to apply to join the modified, virtual event that will focus on the role of course design in the overall act of teaching. Participants will write learning outcomes, develop assessments that are transparent and provide students with multiple means of expression, and plan activities that will support all students in their learning. By the end of the week, participants will have substantial work completed towards a new or revised course design.
This year’s CDI will be held May 24-28 and will be all/mostly virtual. There are two tracks: A full-day option designed for instructors who are newer to the process of course design, and a half-day option for those who have participated in previous course design workshops/institutes. All faculty types, as well as graduate students with substantial course responsibilities, are welcome to apply. For more information, and to apply, please see the CDI page on the website.
Applications will be reviewed starting March 29. Applications received after that date will be considered if space is available.
