Take some time to "go deep" on a course you are designing!


Course Design Institute

The annual Course Design Institute is a three, half-day opportunity to receive structured support for developing or updating an upcoming course. You will leave the institute with a complete course plan to help you get a jump start on fall teaching.

This year the Course Design Institute will return to face-to-face delivery. It will meet daily from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., May 10-12, 2022.


May 10-12, 2022


Teaching Innovation Learning Lab, 3rd Floor, Ekstrom Library

Join us for our annual Course Design Institute to transform or (re)design your course with a student-centered focus.

Through a mix of learning activities, the Institute will help you establish alignment and a focus on deep understanding for your course.

What to Expect

The institute will feature a balance of presentations, large group workshops, small group activities, discussion, and dedicated work time for (re)designing your course.

Participants may choose to work on the development of any type of course delivery, including face-to-face and online offerings.


If you have questions about the Course Design Institute, please contact Jen Anderson by email or at 502.852.8503.


The Course Design Institute welcomes all UofL faculty members, including tenured, tenure-track, term, full- and part-time. Graduate students are also welcome to register. We ask that you be available and willing to attend all three 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 offering of this program so that those who are able to attend the full event are able to do so.
