About the Conference

Get ready to build! Seize the opportunities offered by the transition to semesters. Extreme Course Makeover: Q2S Edition is focused on helping you to work through the redesign and renovation of your courses as you prepare for delivery in semester format.

Like other building projects, course redesign requires vision, a blueprint, a list of needed materials and resources, a set of skills or skilled consultants, and a timeline. This 2-day session—Creating the Blueprint—will help you clarify the vision and provide you with the tools and the collegial support to roll your sleeves up and develop the blueprint for your course redesign.

During a studio session on day two, you will spend time applying what you learn to an actual course. Future events will focus on other parts of the makeover process.
