Course Design Institute

Summer Course Design Institute (CDI)

This 3 ½  day institute takes place June 6-9, 2023 and will provide a personalized course design experience where you will be supported by CTAL staff (along with your colleagues) to create a new course or revise an existing one. During this multi day workshop, you’ll create:

    • New or revised student learning outcomes (SLOs) that are clear, measurable and meaningful for your course
    • A major assignment/exam that emerges from those SLOs
    • A plan for including learning activities that prepare students for your major assignment or exam
    • An inclusive syllabus based on the UD Syllabus template

Our institute will take place each day from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. for days 1-3 (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday). The 4th day (Friday) will be 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. We’ll provide coffee and a light breakfast each day, as well as lunch on the first three full days. All participants are expected to attend the complete program.

All instructors of record are welcome to attend; graduate students must be listed as an instructor of record for a course during the 2023-2024 academic year in order to register.
