The Anatomy of Effective Teaching (Designing Pedagogy Series)

February 20, 2020 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm

Who: Faculty and PostDocs

Where: GRAN 125

What is the anatomy of a well-designed course? Participants will be introduced to the Backward Design Model, which provides a stable structure for designing curriculum and instruction within a course. Using a current syllabus and course outline, participants will evaluate the alignment among course learning outcomes, assessments, and planned learning experiences. New understandings will be applied to improve the design of each participant’s selected course.

           ** Bring a current syllabus of a course you are teaching or have recently taught.
