Overview:Are you designing a new course or redesigning an existing course? During the Foundations of Course Design Intensive, we will work through the course design process and focus on 1) articulating your course vision and purpose, 2) developing course learning outcomes, 3) planning your summative assessments, and 4) outlining experiences to support student learning. The Foundations of Course Design Intensive prioritizes hands-on application and provides opportunities to receive feedback from peers and Trefny colleagues.
This intensive consists of meetings twice a week combined with individual, asynchronous work.
