course design workshop participant in thought

Face-to-face workshop

May 31 - June 4, 2006 at the College of the Siskiyous, Weed, CA

On-line workshop

July 31 - August 4, 2006 (distance learning format)

Finding the time, energy, and inspiration to develop a new course or to re-design an existing course is a challenge for faculty. Join us for either a four-day, face-to-face workshop or a four-day, on-line workshop through which you will make significant progress toward designing or re-designing an effective and innovative undergraduate course in the geosciences. Application deadline for both workshops is March 31, 2006.

Former workshop participants say:

The course design workshop pushed me into new territory for teaching and learning, and I have reconstructed for the better my teaching for all my classes.

Before I attended the workshop I considered myself an effective teacher. But I had the focus all wrong. Now I see how effectively my students can learn.
