CTLA offering sessions on course design for equity

Published: October 23, 2022 Author: Staff reports

The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment (CTLA) invites OHIO instructors to attend either a morning or afternoon session that reviews the backward design process and opportunities for purposefully building courses that promote inclusion and equity through examining goals, content and teaching practices.

A series of short presentations followed by activities during which instructors apply concepts will support refinement of a spring 2023 course.

The morning session will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Thursday, Nov. 10, and the afternoon session from 1 to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 15.

Following this session, participants will

  • Write or redraft course goals or learning outcomes with access and equity in mind.
  • Consider possible meaningful and authentic diversification of course content.
  • Identify opportunities for integrating active learning in course instruction.
