Design Your Course is a course design cohort intended specifically for early career faculty and advanced graduate students intending to pursue faculty careers. This summer-long program is a deep dive into developing effective learning outcomes, robust assessments aligned to those learning outcomes, and engaging learning activities that will help prepare your students for success. By the end of the program, you will have a full course plan that you could take directly into the classroom for the Fall semester. Throughout the program, you will learn to integrate the Framework for Inclusive Teaching Excellence throughout your course design and teaching to support equity, diversity, inclusion, and access.
This experience will kick-off with an individual consultation with the workshop facilitators during the week of May 14 or 21, followed by asynchronous work time through May and June. On June 14, we will meet as a cohort using Zoom to check in, share ongoing work, and plan next steps. For the remainder of the summer, there will be additional work time, culminating in a showcase presentation on August 9.
Depending on your experience level, you can expect to spend from 6 to 13 hours each week participating in Design Your Course. A $500 stipend is available to eligible participants who complete the program. This design cohort is limited to 12 participants. Applications to join Design Your Course are due on May 10, and participants will be informed by May 15.

Due to the time commitment associated with this in-depth workshop, instructors are limited to participation in only one cohort experience during Summer Institute.
