The Office of Instructional Development offers a variety of one- and two-week workshops on teaching-related topics. Workshop topics and dates will be announced and posted in the spring. Information on prior workshops is available in our Workshop Archive.
ACTIVE LEARNING AND BACKWARD COURSE DESIGN. MAY 16th, 17th, 18th. 9:00 a.m. - noon.
In this three day workshop you’ll learn about implementing active learning strategies, backward course design, and other evidence-based best practices appropriate to the class-room you find yourself teaching in—be it a large fixed-seat lecture bowl, an intimate seminar room, or a specially designed active learning space like SCALE-UP. Workshop participants will design a teachable component for a course and have the opportunity for feedback on its implementation. Participants will receive a $300 stipend. Applications are reviewed as they are received, so it is advantageous to apply early.
