The Center for Teaching and Learning is partnering with the CIRTL Network on a 7-week long program designed to expose you to the basic elements of course design. Over the course of the program, you will design a course based on an area of your research interests and present your course plan ideas to our local learning community. By the end of the program, you will have a course syllabus and a unit planned based on your current area of research interest.
The registration deadline is Friday, June 4th, 11:59 PM CST.
This program is about learning how to be creative in teaching. You may have had opportunities to teach, but I’m willing to bet you didn’t have the latitude to really do things in new ways or take risks. One of the best parts of teaching is the creative part. And we think that all you need is permission to play a bit, and you’ll catch right on. Upon successful completion of this workshop series, you will:
- Design a syllabus for a unique and specific course you could teach, an important step for going on the academic job market;
- Discuss and practice effective teaching strategies;
- Implement course design fundamentals;
- This program uses a “flipped course” format. Each week you will engage in the asynchronous online content (videos and other resources) to learn about effective teaching and course design.
- Then you will attend a 1-hour synchronous Zoom seminar that will meet on to discuss what you have learned, practice techniques, and give and receive feedback on your classmates’ projects. Including meeting time, expect to spend about 3 hours per week on this program.
- The course runs from June 14th through July 30th. The 1-hour synchronous seminar sessions will be held on Fridays from 11 AM – 12 PM via Zoom. Attendance at our sessions is required.
- At several points in the program you will have the opportunity to virtually meet and work with graduate students and post-docs from other research universities who are also taking this course.
- You can list this program on your CV as professional development.
