Support Student Growth One Point at a Time

Course Development Workshop

Support Student Growth One Point at a Time: Course Design for Flexibility and Choice!

Registration & Session Details


Providing students with choice in how they accumulate and demonstrate knowledge, skills, and points throughout the semester can help increase motivation, interest, and connection to the material. It is a student-centered practice that is supported by principles from Universal Design, inclusive pedagogy, and motivation research. It provides structured flexibility giving students time to interact with the material at the pace they need.

This workshop will provide guidance and work time to update or design a course you are teaching next year, including getting started with a Canvas site. It will consist of two 3-hour working sessions. You will be working on your ideas throughout the sessions, but the last 30-45 minutes will be dedicated to working directly on your course. By the end of the workshop, you should have a lot of your course ready to launch!
