Designing for Learning Program

The Designing for Learning Program helps faculty reimagine their courses without barriers to learning. While working on a particular course, faculty participants will:

  • Learn strategies for removing obstacles to learning
  • Explore evidence-based practices for course design
  • Experience ongoing collegial conversations about teaching and learning
  • Create an inclusive, empathetic, and action-oriented teaching community
  • Receive follow-up support from the CTL and WID

The program, offered in May, involves two and a half days of interactive workshops. We’ll identify what prevents students from succeeding in a given course, options for removing barriers to desired outcomes, and course design that support an inclusive learning environment. Program facilitators Annie Murray-Close (CTL), Susanmarie Harrington (WID), and Holly Buckland Parker (CTL) draw on their expertise in their disciplines and in faculty development to create a productive and collaborative experience.

Registration for May 2020 opens soon!
