Backwards Design – The Key to Linking Goals, Teaching, and Assessment
Wednesday, June 23, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Presenter: Kelly Hogan (Dept. of Biology)
Backwards design is perhaps the most important principle for designing a class. It allows you to create learning goals, in-class activities, and assessments that are tightly linked and mutually reinforcing. If you are designing a new class, redesigning a current class, or even just curious as to whether your class can benefit from a reimagining, then consider signing up for this workshop.
With the support of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Summer School, UNC’s Summer Institute on College Teaching is running a professional development workshop series this summer for any faculty, postdocs, and graduate students who are interested in learning about the best practices for bringing active learning to their classrooms. Participants in the workshop series will learn how to foster diverse and inclusive classrooms, optimally implement active learning techniques, assess their instruction, and design learning goals and effectively use class time to help students achieve those goals. Attendees of all 8 workshops will earn a certificate as an Education Fellow.
