Registration: SDL-I STEM Cohort, July 2021

We are excited to invite STEM faculty to participate in a new professional development initiative.

Significant Learning by Design I & II combined!

Take the first course in July and redesign your own course.

Gain free access to the second, self-paced course by participating in this cohort and our optional follow-up, evidence-gathering activities.

We are exploring a new, comprehensive model for course redesign that brings together faculty teaching similar disciplines for an in-depth learning experience. Take advantage of this introductory offer for STEM instructors, which includes guidance through an evidence-based practice model, collegial discussion with like-minded colleagues, follow-up resources and activities, and support gathering evidence of impact on student learning.

Registration includes:

  • Participation in Significant Learning by Design-I (SLD-I), a facilitated 2 and 1/2 week online, asynchronous course running July 14-29 (see link for course details).
  • Expert guidance through a complete redesign of a course with personalized feedback at every step – using Dee Fink’s Integrated Course Design model to develop course goals, learning outcomes, assessments, and activities based on learning-centered instruction.
  • FREE limited access to a self-paced version of Significant Learning by Design-II, a 20-hour course designed to build out the remaining components of your course during August and September.
  • Collegial discussion with fellow teacher/scientist STEM instructors and optional live virtual meetings in August and September to continue the momentum and sharing of ideas.
  • Engage in extensive follow-up feedback on the process and outcomes, gathering evidence to share back with your campus and colleagues on the impact of this work.

Join us to (re)design a course focused on learning-centered, long-lasting, significant student learning.
