Course Design Institutes

The Center for Excellence in Teaching at Simmons is pleased to offer summer Course Design Institutes for Simmons faculty.

Each Course Design Institute participant receives:

  • A focused format for accomplishing course design in four five-hour sessions
  • The tools, the time, and the collegial support to dig in and design or re-design any course
  • The chance to interact with a diverse group of colleagues from across Simmons, allowing you to share your own ideas about teaching and gather new ideas from your peers
  • A full set of course design materials that can be used to (re)design your courses during and after the institute

How to Register:

  • Each institute will be capped at eight participants.
  • Institutes will run during June, July, and August; specific dates will be selected based on each participant's availability.
  • Institutes are four days long from 10am to 3pm each day.
  • For more information or to register, contact Jennifer Herman or Tricia Elam Walker in the CET.
