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.

The Course Design Institute is delivered fully online and consists of synchronous and asynchronous interactions on Microsoft Teams. It will be delivered May 11 - 13, 2021, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

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, hybrid, and online offerings (asynchronous and synchronous).

Participants will be asked to complete approximately one hour of pre-work prior to the start of the Course Design Institute. The pre-work will be accessible through asynchronous modules, and registered participants will receive links to them approximately two weeks before the Institute.


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, full- and part-time. Graduate students are also welcome to register. We ask that you be available and willing to attend all three half 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 institute are able to do so.
