Applications for the Office of Teaching, Learning, and Technology Center for Teaching's Course Design Institute are due Friday, March 31. 

Are you interested in designing or redesigning a course? Do you want to connect with experts on backward course design and with peers to discuss teaching ideas?

Apply to join the 2023 Course Design Institute, a multi-day, in-person event for instructors who wish to learn how to design, redesign, or revise a course. You’ll receive hands-on guidance and learn how to:

  • Apply evidence-based frameworks and strategies to design an integrated and equitable course.
  • Develop and align course components, including learning goals and objectives, equitable assessments, and authentic learning activities.
  • Demonstrate course structures and teaching approaches through a syllabus, proposal, or other artifact.
