Seminar - 'Designing an Accelerated Course'

Many faculty are being asked to offer courses over shorter periods of time such as the winter break and shorter summer sessions. In this seminar we will explore how to identify critical elements of your 16-week course and use those as the foundation for your five-week course. This will include a tour of instructional design strategies and research-based tips for making an accelerated course effective and enjoyable for all. This seminar is open to all faculty, adjunct faculty and teaching assistants.

Registration is restricted to 10 individuals in each session.
