This summer, the Center for Academic Excellence will offer our traditional Course Design Institute for any faculty wishing to substantially redesign or re-imagine a course, or to design a new course. In addition to our structure from past years, we have worked to integrate into our CDIs all we have learned in the past year about anti-racist pedagogy, since anti-racist teaching is good teaching, so look for our CDI to include many updates to our design from this transformative work. The CAE's Summer Course Design Institute will be offered remotely on Tuesday, June 8 & Thursday, June 10 with independent work Wednesday, June 9. Apply at this link - https://form.123formbuilder.com/5055396/form - by Monday, May 24 to join us!
On May 20, the CAE will launch our next Online Course Design Institute. This completely asynchronous workshop places instructors in the role of online students as they're guided, step by step, through the process of designing a fully online class, developing goals and outcomes, and building out authentic assessments and activities, all as they experience how it's possible to bring Fairfield's unique brand of teaching to the online environment. The Online CDI runs over the course of four weeks, with modules released on Thursdays for completion by the following Tuesday.
