The 2021 Faculty Summer Institute for Course (Re)Design is a professional development opportunity that provides resources and support for instructors who are preparing to deliver a course during the 2021-22 academic year. In this facilitated learning community, you will build on lessons learned from the past year+ of remote teaching and apply evidence-based teaching practices to create or revise your course plan with an eye toward 1) fostering equitable and effective learning for your students and 2) building your capacity (and that of your instructional team) to design flexible activities and assessments suitable for any teaching modality. The work you will complete in this institute is thus designed to support your teaching long-term. This program is suitable for faculty who are creating a new course as well as those revising an existing syllabus. Space and funding are limited. See below for additional information re: eligibility. Participation in the Faculty Summer Institute for Course (Re)Design can be highlighted in your dossier to be recognized for your next merit or promotion. Participants will receive $1,000 upon completion of program requirements.
DEADLINE: Due to high demand, we are no longer accepting applications for the 2021 summer institute.
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS: The design of this program was inspired in part by the Out of the Box initiative launched by the Division of Life Sciences and Center for Education Innovation and Learning in the Sciences. All workshop curriculum has been developed by CAT, with the exception of Workshop 3, which was developed in collaboration with the UCLA Library’s Writing Instruction & Research Education team (WI+RE). We have aligned program objectives and outcomes with UCLA’s Peer-Assisted Reflection on Student Learning program (PAROSL) and with the values of CAT’s instructional Improvement Group in order to better support faculty who participate in multiple programs supported by CAT and our campus partners.
