Designing Your Own Course

Carolyn Chernoff, CTL Graduate Fellow, Education

Thursday, February 21 | 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 305

Summary: Whether you are on the job market now, adjuncting, or considering future options, designing your own course can alternately inspire joy and panic. This interactive workshop will focus on key elements of course design. We will focus on syllabus construction from readings, central questions, assignments, grading rubrics, to student takeaways, and also address revamping existing courses or working with an inherited syllabus. This workshop will focus on backwards planning, or designing a course with student learning goals in mind. Participants will leave this workshop with a sense of their own teaching goals and a better understanding of syllabus and course creation.
