2020 Winter Institute: Learning-Centered Courses
Thursday, January 9, 2020
Registration opens at 9:15, Workshop: 9:45 - 2:30
This day-long event will feature dynamic presentations by multiple SLU faculty members from across the university who are intentionally prioritizing learning-centered course design. The morning presentations will be followed by lunch and then an interactive, pedagogical workshop focused on practical ways to make one’s own courses more learning-centered.
Introduction to Online Teaching
The Introduction to Online Teaching is a 4-week, fully-online seminar that provides a pedagogical foundation for Saint Louis University faculty who are new to the online teaching environment. By the end of the course, faculty will have a draft design plan for an online course designed to meet the University’s Online Course Design Rubric.
- March 17, 2020 through April 16, 2020
The course requires a commitment of approximately 3 hours per week over a 4-week period to complete. It provides faculty an opportunity to gain the experience of an online “student” and to experience a fully-online course that has been designed to align with the University’s Online Course Design Rubric.
Spring Online Courses for CUTS Participants
Participants enrolled in the Certificate in University Teaching Skills are required to take three online courses. The sequencing of the online courses is an intentional scaffold and serves as a foundation for a statement of teaching philosophy, syllabus development, and the creation of course projects and assessments. Courses are asynchronous and conducted through Blackboard, and each course lasts two weeks.
