Summer 2018


General Course Design Institute :: June 11, 13, & 14

Looking to design a new course? Need to revise an existing course? Join us for a three-day workshop designed to inspire and support faculty in their course design and revision process.

Using a backwards design model, participants will design or redesign a course based on a foundation of course goals and objectives. Working alongside a community of your peers, you will have multiple opportunities for discussion and feedback about the various components of your course. Participants will leave the workshop with a course outline and draft plans for their instructional activities and assessment strategies. A $1,000 stipend is offered for this institute. Lunch and refreshments served each day.

The registration deadline is May 28th, and participation is limited. Contact the CAE at cae@fairfield.edu with questions.

Online Course Development Grants Continue...

The Center for Academic Excellence is continuing to accept applications for Faculty Development Grants to develop online courses. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis as applications are received, and course development work will largely be done online, using the very tools that instructors will incorporate into the courses they're developing.

Both full-time and part-time faculty are eligible to receive grants - $500 at the start of the course development & training process, and another $500 once the course begins running. For more information, please contact Jay Rozgonyi at jrozgonyi@fairfield.edu.
