CON04.13 - Rethinking course design support for instructors: Multiple perspectives and approaches

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Since the publication of Rethinking Teaching in Higher Education: From a Course Design Workshop to a Faculty Development Framework (Saroyan & Amundsen, 2004), many institutions have been inspired to adopt and customize the course design workshop model proposed in the book for their own use. During this session educational developers from three Canadian universities will share how their critical reflection on the workshop model resulted in changes to the original workshop format, duration, and materials. Participants will engage in a similar process of critical reflection whereby they will consider what information they need to inform decision making and affect change.


Drawing on Brookfield’s work (1995), we will use individual and small-group activities and discussion, in which participants will consider how to enhance their programs through the lenses of 1) themselves, 2) instructors, 3) peers, and 4) the literature. Throughout, we will share our tools and encourage participants to consider what issues to explore with their own constituents.


This session will be of interest to educational developers and others who offer curricular support for instructors and academic programs.
