Sign-up now for the 2013 Spring Effective Course Design Workshop Series

This spring, the Innovative Course-builiding Group will be once again hosting our informative, engaging and sometimes entertaining series of workshop!

These workshops might be for you if
… you are planning or teaching a new course.
… you’ve been teaching a course for a while, but want to breath new life into it.
… you are interested in trying some new approaches but don’t know where to start.
… you’ve been trying some new approaches and want feedback.
… you are just interested in issues of teaching and learning.
… you are wondering what service learning, civic engagement, active learning, engaged learning and all these other buzz words really mean.

AND THE BEST PART IS THAT YOU WILL BE WORKING ON YOUR OWN COURSE, SO AT THE END OF THE SEMESTER YOU WILL HAVE A COURSE READY TO TEACH.

Logistics
Each series will be unique depending on the participants but the sessions have the following themes and will be facilitated by IC-bG members.

All meetings convene at 12:00 and there are always snacks.

About the IC-bG

Who we are …
The Innovative Course-Building Group (IC-BG) is a grass-roots social network for learning that supports teaching faculty and staff across disciplines. We use civic issues as a catalyst for designing engaging courses that will result in important student learning.

Our guiding principles …

  • Time is valuable: gatherings are deliberately designed to be productive, meaningful, and enjoyable uses of this limited resource.
  • Good ideas recycled, refined, and adapted become great ideas.
  • Teaching and learning rarely happen in isolation: collaboration supports innovation.

Our people …

IC-bG is a collection of GC faculty that have come together to engage with issues of teaching and learning. Most of us started with the workshop series but some have come through other routes. All are welcome. The members listed below are familiar with the workshops. Please contact any one of them for more information.
