Who should attend?

The Institute is open to faculty across all disciplines and is ideal for those who teach year one and two General Education courses. Registration is limited to the first 60 qualified registrants.


The Course Redesign Institute for Active Learning welcomes all UofL faculty members, including tenured, tenure-track, term, full- and part-time. Graduate students are also welcome to register. However, due to space limitations, priority will be given to faculty. We ask that you be available and willing to attend both full days of the Institute. If you have a recurring teaching or meeting conflict during the institute time, we invite you to consider participating in a future iteration of this program so that those who are able to attend both full days are able to do so.
