Are you a Caltech faculty member? Are you teaching a new class in 2019? Or one that you've taught before that you would like to re-design, re-invigorate  or re-engineer? We would like to invite you to participate in the CTLO's intensive workshop on course design for Caltech faculty. We'll walk you through the process of backwards design from start to finish, discuss active learning strategies that will engage your students, clarify what learning outcomes are, evaluate different feedback approaches and discuss best practices for assessing students and fostering an inclusive classroom.

Last summer's participants commented that "It was a wonderful, supportive and open environment in which to re-evaluate my own approach to teaching", "I really enjoyed teaching [this past quarter] and I think that the short course that you ran helped with that" and "this was one of the most (if not the most) useful class I took for years. I really feel that I learned something helpful, I could apply and use easily".

This course will be an intensive workshop version of the four-week summer course. It will take place on December 6th from 12-4pm. Lunch, snacks and caffeine will be provided.
