Follow Up Friday: from the archives, ICYMI, and upcoming events

From the Archives

If you find yourself scrambling to make a whole course come together or tend to forget the critical components that you need, we recommend that you design your course backwards. Read our post from May 23rd where we explain the basics of Backward Design. Starting with identifying measurable learning objectives, you work systematically from the end goal(s) of the course to the beginning, which can help reduce stress as you build your fall courses!

ICYMI

Workshop Wednesday: Avoiding Burnout Using Course Design

This Workshop Wednesday focuses on specific and actionable course design strategies that can help faculty avoid becoming overwhelmed and thus leading to burnout. Instead of focusing solely on personal strategies for dealing with chronic stress, this workshop delves into specific teaching strategies and course design steps faculty can use to make their teaching work for them and their students. This workshop is for anyone teaching who is either using online learning tools such as Canvas, to supplement their course, to those teaching classes that are solely online. Facilitated by James Butler, Digital Learning Strategist and delivered by Clemson Online.
