Course Design/Redesign Institute - New Blended Format!
Tuesday, December 8, 2015, Robert Sutherland Hall, Room 202
Facilitated by Dr. Klodiana Kolomitro, Centre for Teaching and Learning
The Course Design/Redesign Institute will introduce the principles of course design to instructors who are developing a new course or who would like to hone their course design skills and refresh a course they’ve already taught. Participants will work on an online component beginning in October, before meeting in December for 1 day of collaborative work, in a supportive environment to design/redesign a course of their choosing.
Institute Format and Outcomes
Adapted from a program developed at McGill University, Course Design@Queen's is fast becoming the CTL's signature program. Upon completion of the Course Design/Redesign Institute you will be able to:
- identify situational factors that affect decisions you make in the design process
- apply principles of backward design and integrated course design to improve student engagement and learning
- promote a learner/ing-focused approach to course design and teaching
- must complete the online component prior to the institute (which will be available by early October)
- must have a course that you would like to design/redesign, regardless of the mode (face-to-face, online or blended)
- must be able to commit to the full day of the Institute.
- a hands-on intensive learning experience to engage you in a design process that is transferable to all courses
- the development of a course framework with identified learning outcomes, assessments, learning activities, and instructional strategies
- an opportunity to network and share ideas, challenges, strategies, and questions about teaching, learning and design with others
- follow-up consultation and support (e.g., LMS, rubric design, etc.)
- access to institute materials and other resources on teaching and learning
- a certificate of achievement signed by the Associate Vice-Provost (Teaching and Learning) upon completion of a critical analysis
