DIY with a Guide
The DIY with a Guide program is a structured program offering faculty an 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. The cohort will meet 4 times to share ideas and get valuable feedback from peers. The program consists of 4 modules spread out over the 9 week period: 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.

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 three-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.
