course design workshop participant in thought

Face-to-face workshop

July 8 - 12, 2007 at Hamilton College, Clinton, NY

Online workshop

July 30 - August 3, 2007 (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, online 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 April 19, 2007.

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.
