Course Mapping Camp offers participants the opportunity to design a pedagogically sound blueprint for any course. During this two-day workshop, facilitators will teach participants to apply course design best practices to create or modify course goals and learning objectives, and align them with a variety of assessment types.


By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Create or modify course goals and learning objectives for their course to be measurable, specific, and learner-centered.
  • Align student content and assessments with course goals and objectives.
  • Define the overall structure for their course.
  • Learn how to approach content-development from a learning-centered perspective in order to build student knowledge, skills, and values


This workshop alternates between being offered online and in-person.
