The Course Development Institute (CDI) is a professional development opportunity consisting of multiple “short courses” that faculty take asynchronously and may "stack" together to create a unique CDI pathway. The short course topics focus on helping faculty create profound, meaningful, student-focused learning experiences in their courses.
Faculty also have an opportunity to collaborate one-on-one with members of our TIPS team during the CDI to discuss ideas, share resources and projects, and get feedback.
Provides an opportunity to grow in these areas:
The CDI is comprised of two-week-long ‘short courses’ in Canvas. You first explore content materials independently, followed by meaningful synchronous sessions and consultations. We will have short courses running at different two-week periods throughout each semester. It takes about one hour to work through the materials of a short course--you can complete it all at once or take your time.
We want you to be partners with us as we continue to develop the structure of the CDI; We want to hear from you! What do you think of this format? What platform do you prefer for our CDI Community (CDI-C)? What short course topics do you want to see?
