Starting at the End: Using Backward Design to Create a Course Syllabus @ Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning
Jul 25 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

backwarddesign
The idea of “starting at the end” comes from the concept of backwards design (Wiggins & McTighe, 2001) which emphasizes developing a course with the course goals in mind. Backwards design begs the question, “What will the students be able to do by the end of this course?”. One of the ways instructors can convey these goals to students is through the syllabus document. This workshop focuses specifically on syllabus development as a blueprint for creating outcomes, assignments, and assessments that reflect the goals of the course. This workshop is great for instructors that desire to improve the instructional alignment of their courses by creating a clear syllabus that conveys the desired student outcomes for the course.

This workshop will be led by Justina Jackson, Doctor of Education Candidate. Appropriate for Faculty and Graduate Students.
