The Course Design Institute (CDI) is, "a “bootcamp” style program that guides faculty through the design of a new course or the re-design an existing one in a facilitated, supported environment" offered by the University Teaching and Learning Center (UTLC). CDI this year is May 21-25.
"Participants explore learning-centered design principles in a large group setting and then work on their individual course designs in a small, discipline- or pedagogy-focused learning team. Teams provide brainstorming, individualized feedback, and on-going support opportunities."
Once again our colleagues at the UTLC have welcomed the Nashman Center to facilitate a learning team for faculty who are attending the Course Design Institute to design/re-design a course that will use community-engaged pedagogy. The team last year benefited from the opportunity to meet colleagues who are also doing community-engaged work and develop a group of critical friends to consider new ideas and approaches with.
Participation in the Course Design Institute is is by application, and all GW faculty members are eligible. Applications are accepted through March 24, 2018
