Center for Teaching Excellence
Thomas Cooper Library, Room L511

Presentation Delivery Mode: Hybrid


For those who have opted attend the session via web conference, log-in as a guest at This is a Blackboard Collaborate Session.


The workshop starts at 12:00 p.m. and we kindly request participants who have opted to attend via web conference to enter the webinar at least 15 minutes prior to the start time and no later than 12:05 p.m. 


It’s time to start thinking about your Summer or Fall course! Where do you start? What details and requirements must be included? How can you revise your course assessments and activities to make it flow better, and align to your priorities? Join other faculty in this two-part workshop series to help you get started and address these kinds of questions.

Part 1, 'Review, Revise, Realign” (the Learning Outcomes, Assessments, and Activities) will take you from an initial reviewing of your current course learning outcomes into a discussion of how to ensure they align appropriately with assessments for in-person or online courses. What assessments will work better in different types of learning modalities and environments, and what should you reconsider? How will this work with certain class sizes or scenarios? This will be followed by reviewing, revising, and/or redeveloping the associated student activities, both for within and outside-of-class settings.

Both parts of this series will be highly interactive, with other faculty colleague participants playing an important part in contributing ideas and recommendations and producing a positive outcome for every participant. Bounce ideas off each other, hear what others are doing, while following along with the facilitator's steps for development and recommendations. Bring a past syllabus to start working on it as we go through the workshop!


** Registration Procedures Update **

In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance at certificate of completion workshops and events, the Center for Teaching Excellence requires that all registrants create an account in our registration system and login to register for all workshops.


If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office of Organizational and Professional Development, you do not need to create an account. You can login using your HR training username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete training record for both CTE and HR trainings will be available with a single account and login.


Participants must attend a workshop in its entirety to receive credit for the workshop in their training records. Late arrival and/or early exit from a workshop invalidates receiving credit. If technology issues require rescheduling of a workshop, participants must attend the workshop at the rescheduled time to receive credit. These policies apply to all CTE workshops/events, including workshops that qualify as requirements/electives for a certificate of completion.
