Course Design Institute 2019

This event has already taken place, please don't try to go to it!

Course Design Institute (CDI) is a “bootcamp” style program that guides faculty through the design of a new course or the re-design an existing one in a facilitated, supported environment. Participants experience the iterative, dynamic, and scholarly process of learning-focused course design and the benefits of active learning.

All GW faculty members are invited to apply. The time commitment is an intensive 4.5 days and $500 stipends are awarded upon successful completion. Food and many opportunities to collaborate with fellow faculty are an integral part of the experience. CDI has proven relevant to any teaching mode. This year, we are adding more examples and discussion about adapting the many ideas for in-person courses to online courses. 

Benefits: Faculty members walk away with:

  • A final (or near final) syllabus
  • Experiences with active learning and understanding of learning-centered design
  • Access to a resource-packed website
  • A community of faculty and UTLC staff for ongoing feedback and support during the academic year
