Do you have an idea for a new course you would like to design, or an existing course you would like to redesign? The TCU Course Design Institute: Starting With the End in Mind is an extensive, intensive, five-part workshop in which faculty and instructional staff will focus on designing or redesigning a specific course. You will use the process of Backwards Design, and work through a model of Integrated Course Design to build or rebuild a course. Throughout the institute, you will be provided with the tools, time, guidance, and support needed to design an aligned, integrated, student-centered course.
By the end of the institute, you will be able to:
- Use and discuss basic terms and concepts related to course design.
- Apply the process of Backwards Design to build a course in which goals, assignments, and instruction are integrated and aligned.
- Develop authentic assignments that engage students in meaningful work.
- Expand your repertoire of student-centered active learning strategies.
- Articulate your understanding of how good course design impacts student learning.
- Connect with fellow instructors with similar teaching interests.
The institute will consist of large- and small-group sessions, and 1:1 consultations with Koehler Center staff as requested. You will leave the institute with a sound course structure, the beginnings of relevant materials, and a peer-reviewed draft of a syllabus.
