In addition to online resources, CEI will be offering a series of three workshops every month from March through September 2015, each geared toward different levels of need.
The schedule for
General Education Course Design workshops is now
This workshop is designed for the faculty member interested in reviewing an existing course for alignment to the new general education where a minimal level of revision and redesign is expected. The emphasis will be on syllabus revision.
Participants will be led through the process of “backward design” to determine the outcomes students will achieve by taking the class and then outline the course syllabus to demonstrate how the course will help students achieve these outcomes and how the faculty will assess student achievement.
In this intensive working session, faculty will design the most detailed aspects of a proposed course, including the refinement of learning outcomes, mapping course outcomes to program outcomes, designing instructional activities and student assessments, and writing the course syllabus in compliance with Faculty Senate requirements.
