    Are you preparing to design a new course? Does a course you've taught in the past need a refresh? The Course Design Institute will take you through the steps of integrated course design in a supported, congenial envirnment. At the end of an intensive week of study and work you will emerge with a fully (re)designed syllabus, lots of resources, and a network of dedicated teachers from across GW.

    CDI will run from May 21-25 and is facilitated by GW faculty from across the disciplines as well as UTLC staff. We will begin accepting applications in late January, 2018.
