Satisfies prerequisite toward the Delta Certificate: 1/2 course [1/2C]
Learn how to build a course out of your research specialty in this 7-week course that guides grad students and postdocs through the fundamentals of course design. In this course, trainees learn the skills of course design and apply these skills by building a full college course based on their area of research expertise. Each week focuses on a different element of course design (using a Backwards Design sequence), allowing students to progressively build their course each week. At the conclusion of the course, students will present their course concept in a short presentation modeled on a course pitch session in a faculty meeting or job interview.
