Course Design Clinics For Fall Semester

The Course Design Clinic has been developed to provide you with focused support as you are planning for a new course or revising an existing course for a fall semester requiring flexible teaching modes and methods. During this clinic, you will be guided through several stages of course design through both Zoom meetings, discussion groups, customized consultations, and the Canvas site including:

1) aligning goals and learning outcomes with activities and assessments
2) organizing the course shell, syllabus, and schedule
3) designing individual class meetings, activities, and assignments
4) planning for assessment of student learning

Working with the CETL and TLOS staff, as well as campus partners and colleagues from across campus, you will receive guidance on rigorous instructional design, assignment-based assessment, active learning strategies, and inclusive course design. The goal of this clinic is to get you to think through multiple levels of granularity for your course and complete much of planning at once while having instructional experts on hand. You will leave the clinic well on your way to having a complete course, syllabus, and task list for implementation. Faculty can register for workshops using the links below or by registering through the PDN Workshop page.
