(Re)Designing Your Course and Syllabus Using a Learner-Centered Approach (8/16)

August 16, 2021, 2:00pm to 3:15pm
Intended audience: 
Academic Support Staff, Faculty, Graduate Student Instructors

How can you transform your course to center student learning? When designing a new course or revising an existing one, a learner-centered approach calls for instructors to examine the relationship between learning objectives, assessments, and activities. In this interactive workshop, participants will explore strategies for aligning these components to help students focus their learning on what matters most in your course and to ensure the accuracy of your assessments. Participants will also consider a key tool used to communicate student expectations and course details: a course syllabus.
