Course Design Institute (CDI)
December 15, 2021, 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM EST
An event every 2 days that begins at 8:30 AM, repeating until December 17, 2021
Each CFE Course Design Institute (CDI) is a structured sequence of workshops, activities, and working sessions held over a 3-day period with a 6- to 12-member cohort of UNC instructors. Together, we use backward design approaches to develop upcoming courses while also receiving feedback on the course materials we create. Applications for the December 13th, 15th, and 17th cohort are open until Friday, November 19th. Any faculty and staff members, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars at Carolina who have instructional responsibilities are welcome. The December 2021 CDI will be held remotely using Zoom and Microsoft Teams.
