The Course Development Institute

Course Development Institute 1Every summer, the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning and Instructional Consulting at the Kelley School of Business co-sponsor the Course Development Institute (CDI).

The 2015 CDI will be held on Friday, May 29, and Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, June 1, 3, and 5. If you would like to be considered for acceptance to this year's CDI, please complete an application, which can be accessed here. Applications will be accepted until Friday, April 24, and applicants will be notified of their status by Friday, May 1.

By way of highly interactive processes and activities, Institute facilitators Eric Metzler, Lisa Kurz, and George Rehrey guide participants through the beginning phases of developing a new course or transforming an existing course. Participants receive invaluable feedback from colleagues from other departments and disciplines on the work they do during the Institute.

Those who enroll will be asked to choose one course to develop or revise. By the end of the Institute, participants can expect to have determined learning outcomes for their students and outlined major final assignment (or exam) that gathers evidence about the extent to which students have achieved those outcomes. They will also have the opportunity to lay out a basic calendar for the course they are developing and to map out and align assignments and grading strategies that motivate students toward the learning outcomes they have delineated.
