What Do We Do?
We offer both WORKSHOPS and an ONLINE COURSE for college teachers on Integrated Course Design, a special way of designing courses that lead to greater student engagement and better student learning. The conceptual framework for these workshops and courses is based on Dee Fink’s book, “Creating Significant Learning Experiences.” (Jossey-Bass, 2003).
We offer campus-based workshops and an annual national workshop. For more information on these workshops, see the tab on "Workshops".
Starting in 2011, we began offering an online short-course. This short-course has two tracks: one is for people designing face-to-face courses; the other is focused specifically on how to design hybrid or online courses. For more information on these, see the tab on "Online Short-Course."
Designing Online Courses
This is a rapidly growing area of interest in higher education. Therefore we have both campus-based workshops and an online course that are focused specifically on "Designing Online or Hybrid Courses." For more information about these two learning opportunities, click here.
We also created a closely related website that contains multiple resources, forms, examples of good course design, and a listserv - all aimed at helping people learn how to design their courses well. The URL for this website is: www.designlearning.org
