Course Design Studio for Faculty

The Center for Engaged Teaching (CET) would like to invite you to join us for an enjoyable, comprehensive studio on creating, modifying, or updating one of your courses. Participants should arrive with a specific course in mind, and all course materials (preferably electronic) and resources.

Upon completion of the three-day studio, participants will be able to

  • design a course integrating Backward Design by writing measureable, active Learning Outcomes (LO) and identifying Evidence aligned with LO using an analytic rubric;

  • pilot, critique and organize one of 228 Learning Experiences based on empirical research of effective practices to enhance their course;

  • implement Boyer’s Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

  • model as a method for examining, reflecting and improving effective T&L; and

  • identify appropriate, relevant and meaningful (ARM) instructional technologies to empower student engagement.

The studio is offered the first three days of final exams week, 9am-4pm, each academic quarter. Breakfast, lunch, and coffee included. We are also happy to schedule additional studios and departmental specific studios upon request. 

If you would like to join us please complete this interest form or send an email to or
