Decision Filters for an Aligned Course Design

Through participation in a series of workshops offered by the UHD Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence, faculty can earn various badges and micro-credentials, leading to a Certificate in Evidence-Based Instruction and Course Design. Completion of this certificate signifies a dedication to continuous improvement of teaching skills and a commitment to UHD student success. Upon completion, participants will be able to implement backwards course design, identify evidence-based strategies relevant to their courses, and increase student motivation and engagement.

Decision Filters for an Aligned Course Design (8/29): An effective and efficient backwards course design process begins with strategic creation of course learning outcomes. Outcomes serve as decision filters for creating aligned learning activities and assessments that accurately reflect learning. In this workshop, you will learn timesaving approaches to creating outcomes that will drive your course design.

Lunch will be provided to faculty registrants. This session is open to all UHD faculty, tenure track, non tenure track, and adjuncts alike. To be included in meal planning, please register by end of day, Tuesday, August 27, 2019. Update: Registration deadline extended to noon, Wednesday, August 28.

Session facilitators: Dr. Greg Dement & Dr. Lea Campbell

It was a good mix of theory and the implications for application on a relatively high level for an audience with diverse areas of specialization.
