This interactive, three-part workshop introduces principles to guide effective learning outcome design and assessment. Participants will apply these principles by designing learning outcomes for their own courses. The workshop involves three, 80-min sessions (and a wee bit of between-session homework). Each session builds upon the prior session. Overall workshop learning outcomes include: "Expect-to-see" participants will compose a set of six or more useable learning outcomes applicable to their courses; "Like-to-see" participants will apply the principles of learning outcome design to their selection of instructional and assessment strategies.

Curriculum Design Institute (CDI): Foundations [CDI Series]
Monday, July 22, 2013 to Friday, July 26, 2013, inclusive [Lunch and nutrition breaks provided]
Registrants are required to attend all five days.
9:00 AM ~ 3:30 PM daily, HHB 128
Facilitators: Dr. Ed Ishiguro, Department of Biochemistry & Microbiology and Learning and Teaching Centre, Dr. Joe Parsons and Teresa Dawson, Learning and Teaching Centre
The Curriculum Design Institute (CDI) provides a collegial environment and extensive support for instructors to design a new course or to redesign a current course in order to enhance student learning and student engagement. CDI provides a focused approach to course/curriculum development, including identification of: 1) key course concepts; 2) learning goals/outcomes; 3) instructional strategies; and 4) appropriate assessment methods to support course goals. Additionally, the CDI introduces participants to a range of campus-wide expertise and resources that will be available to participants during and after the workshop session. As the University welcomes students with a range of learning disabilities and from a diversity of cultural backgrounds, we need to align our teaching practices with the needs of all students. We seek to promote values and competencies for inclusion, world-mindedness, global citizenship and Indigenous ways of knowing across all academic disciplines. Previous participants in this workshop have described it as a "transformative experience" and have expressed a renewed sense of enthusiasm for teaching.
NB: This institute is 5 days long, and attendance on all days is expected. CDI is available at no charge to all UVic instructors who are accepted into the program. However, there is a cancellation fee of $200.00 for withdrawals with less than three weeks' notice, or if the student fails to complete the course. For this eventuality, a FAST account number or a cheque for that amount is required at the time of registration.
Special arrangements are also available for current instructors at Vancouver Island Educational Developers’ Alliance (VIEDA) partner institutions (Royal Roads, Camosun College, Vancouver Island University and North Island College). The cost to VIEDA instructors is $500.00. The cost to those not affiliated with UVic or VIEDA is $750.00.
THIS COURSE IS NOW FULL, BUT YOU MAY REGISTER FOR THE WAITLIST IF YOU WISH. THERE IS ALSO A DECEMBER WORKSHOP from
Monday, December 9, 2013 to Friday, December 13, 2013.
