As part of the Faculty Focus Series, CETL will present 'Thinking About Course Design.' This session will take a holistic look at what we do as teachers prior to our entering the classroom. We’ll look at material to be covered in a course, how to come up with a syllabus, provide meaningful assignments and select a text book.

The series will focus on the interrelationships of course learning objectives, assessment and constructing engaging and significant learning activities. The first session will ask participants to design one meaningful learning objective and then the sessions will link to other sessions and components to complete the experience.
