Wednesday, March 28, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM, Wells Library 043

During this workshop, we will discuss how to use the principles of “backward course design” to create a syllabus.

Throughout the workshop, participants will then apply the ideas they are learning to the beginnings of their own course syllabus.
