CUT Course Design (CTE4073)

Thursday, February 14, 2019 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST

Location: MC 2036

Facilitator: Stephanie White (CTE)


It can be exciting to design your own course, but where do you start? In this half-day workshop, we’ll guide you through the planning process to help you design a course focused on student learning. You’ll begin aligning your course learning goals, assessments, and teaching strategies, all within the context of the course, your students, and yourself as an instructor. You’ll also get feedback on your ideas from your peers.
