Koehler Center Outcomes 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.1, 2.2Do 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.
