WHAT IS THE COURSE DESIGN INSTITUTE?
The Course Design Institute (CDI) is a week-long, immersive experience focused on designing courses for significant learning – that is, learning that has the potential to change students’ lives in lasting and important ways. The Institute brings faculty members together to engage in meaningful guided discussions, hands-on workshops, and working sessions to design or redesign a course in which all components (outcomes, assessments, and activities) align to result in significant learning.
WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF IT?
Though active participation and mindful engagement in this Institute, you will – in addition to completing a draft of the high-level design for your course – be better-prepared to:
WHAT IS THE FORMAT OF THIS SUMMER'S CDI?
Most of this year's institute will happen face-to-face, and will include guided discussions, hands-on workshops, and working sessions led by the Office of Teaching and Learning staff. However, there will be asynchronous components as well as we draw upon what we've learned over the past few years to make the most of both the online and in-person modalities. The institute will culminate in a share-and-celebrate event on the final day of the institute.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CDI, AND IS THERE A STIPEND?
University of Denver faculty interested in designing or redesigning a course that will be taught during the 2022-2023 school year are encouraged to apply. We hope to be able to accommodate all faculty members who are interested. However, capacity is limited, so if we are not able to accommodate everyone, priority will be given to faculty who have not yet taken the CDI.
Faculty members who complete the Course Design Institute, including key deliverables such as a course alignment table outlining key course components, will receive a $750 stipend.
To register for this summer’s CDI, which takes place 8/1-8/5, please complete this registration form. We encourage you to complete this form as soon as you are able, as capacity is limited, so later registrants are not guaranteed a spot. The application deadline is July 15.
