Day 1 Learning Outcomes
Theme: Building a Context: Starting With the “Why”?
Essential Question for Day 1: Why might students care about my course?'
The CDI focuses on the application of the backward design approach. On Day 1 you will understand how "big ideas" may be useful in guiding the design of your course. You will work in design feedback groups to offer and integrate feedback on course plans in progress. By the end of day 1, you should be able to:
- Apply the backward design concept to the design of your course
- Articulate "big ideas" for your course
- Integrate learner-centered considerations into your course design
- Prioritize course level learning that aligns with your "big ideas"
