Virtual Event

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching is pleased to invite all new Fall 2020 faculty to an Introduction to Course Design Weekly Workshop Series.
During the spring semester, a small group of new faculty will have the opportunity to learn about backward course design, including Fink's taxonomy of significant learning, and how the process of backward course design is related to FIU’s vision of teaching excellence and student motivation and learning.
Each week your presenters will facilitate discussions and activities designed to help you create a new course or reimagine an existing one.
CAT and faculty guest presenters will guide participants in:

  • Discussing the elements of FIU’s Vision for Teaching Excellence within the context of your discipline and teaching.
  • Recognizing how and why certain features of learning environments impact student motivation and engagement.
  • Articulating learning goals that are 1) well-defined, 2) measurable, and 3) span the six dimensions of Fink’s taxonomy.
  • Recognizing the relationship between course goals, objectives, practice, and feedback.
  • Identifying learning activities for practice and feedback.
  • Practicing the identification of course-level assessments that align with course goals and learning activities.
  • Conveying to students the value and utility of a course.
