Course Design Institute

Thank you for your interest in the 2019/20 Course Design Institute (CDI)! The CDI supports instructors in re-imagining teaching and students’ learning through measurable actions. Selected participants will join colleagues from multiple disciplines to engage in transformative course design. Specifically, you will work to transform a course or dimension of a course. 

The CTL has invited currently teaching faculty, lecturers, and staff to participate in the Course Desigin Institute, which has been designed to provide participants with cutting-edge knowledge and skills in developing engaging, effective, and equitable courses.
