BYU Center for Teaching, Learning offers course design workshop Jan. 3

On Tuesday, Jan. 3 — the day before classes begin — the BYU Center for Teaching and Learning is offering a useful “just-in-time” workshop for faculty and instructors, "Designing A Course for Significant Learning," from 10 a.m. to noon in 3223 WSC.

Based on L.D. Fink’s model of course design, this workshop will be valuable for any professor planning a new course or re-designing a current one. This hands-on workshop will provide collaborative support for instructors as they create/modify their course(s) using

• Course learning outcomes

• Learning assessments to evaluate the achievement of the course learning outcomes (e.g., tests, assignments, presentations, projects)

• Engaging learning activities to help students achieve the course learning outcomes (e.g., in-class activities, homework)

To register, RSVP no later than Tuesday, Dec. 27, to ctlrec@byu.edu. List your name and department and be sure to include your e-mail address to receive materials related to the workshop before it begins.

For more information, contact lynn_sorenson@byu.edu.
