Collaborative Learning with Canvas
Collaborative assignments can give students opportunities to engage with disciplinary content, address authentic complex problems, and build the valuable team communication and project development skills they will need in their professional lives. Such work also can be rife with obstacles: student confusion, grading issues, and complications associated with collaborating on projects outside of class. In this workshop, participants will learn how to design group work that addresses common problems in advance, learn how to scaffold and support group work to gradually build student progress, and experience how Canvas supports student-centered learning for group assignments.

All-day
Course Design Institute
Are you teaching a new course next year? Or ready to redesign one you’ve already taught? Interested in aligning the components of your course to intentionally foster significant student learning? If so, come and join colleagues from across campus in an intensive four-day working institute. Together participants will focus on the role of course design in the overall act of teaching; write learning outcomes that will provide focus for the course activities and assessment. By the end of the week, participants will have substantial work completed towards a new or revised course design.

DIY with a Guide, Session 1: Summer Kickoff
The new DIY with a Guide program offers faculty a self-paced opportunity to design a course in collaboration with an instructional designer in the CTL. This program is reserved for those faculty who have already successfully completed Online in 9. It is structured to build on what you learned in Online in 9 to design a next-level, quality-assured online course with carefully integrated technologies and instructional strategies to achieve course goals. Though the program is self-paced, the cohort will meet 4 times over lunch to share ideas and get valuable feedback from peers. The program consists of 4 modules spread out over the semester: Designing, Building, Testing, and Reflecting. The central components of the program are built around Chickering and Ehrmann's framework, “Implementing the Seven Principles: Technology as Lever.” At the end of the semester, faculty participants will have a completely designed, quality-assured course ready to offer students.
