Overview

Our 2020 offering has been canceled due to COVID-19. Please check back for future dates.

The Design and Development Intensive allows participants to apply best practices for designing pedagogically sound and engaging courses during a free weeklong intensive course development intensive. Participants will learn about faculty support resources and hear faculty perspectives on course design while building the foundation for a future course offering, including a course map, a learner-centered syllabus, and active learning assignments.

Objectives

Instructors will:

  • Develop a well-aligned course map, learn to incorporate innovative teaching and assessment methods into their courses, and begin implementation of their plan.
  • Participate and connect with faculty from all disciplines and will be encouraged to continue to build cross-disciplinary relationships.
  • Recognize the importance of inclusion, accessibility, and learner-centered instruction, and acquire strategies to use in their teaching across campus.
  • Be introduced to the academic services available within UFIT and across UF.
