Course Goals and Backwards Design: Principles for Creating Engaging Courses

Monday, January 06 2014 @ 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Synergy between course goals, assignments and other learning activities is crucial for helping students gain the most from your class. This workshop will provide principles for identifying, writing and utilizing learning goals as the starting point for your course design. Participants will (re)design goals for a current or future course, and then spend time looking at strategies to align assignments and in-class activities with those goals. This workshop includes lunch for participants.

Lunch will be served at this event.
