Curriculum Design

Curriculum Design is an intensive, multi-day, hands-on seminar—provides you the opportunity to experience the iterative, dynamic, and scholarly process of learning-focused course design. We firmly believe that participation in CD can help you become the teacher/ you dream of being, a teacher who creates truly transformative learning experiences for students.

This course design strategy, which begins with the question, “What do I want my students to know 3-5 years after the course is over?” offers you a framework for considering the whole learner, making her the focus of the learning environment. It provides you guidance for thinking about the types of knowledge and skills you want students to learn and how students might apply and integrate that knowledge. It prompts you to think about other dimensions of learning: how you might inspire students to care about that knowledge, and what students might learn about themselves, others, and their own learning. And, it asks you to carefully consider questions such as these: How do I assess whether I and my students meet the course goals.
