Center For Teaching And Learning

Our Mission

The Center for Teaching and Learning supports UIW faculty in their teaching role through workshops, individual consultations, and other development activities.

Monday, October 24, 2022 from 9 - 10 a.m. (11/16/22 from 9 - 10 a.m. and 12/1/22 from 9 - 10 a.m.)

It’s that time again. An opportunity to participate in the Course Design in Canvas program. Participants will have the wonderful opportunity to learn about Backwards Design with Jay McTighe. For those of you who are new to Backwards Design, it is the process to design a lesson, unit, or course by first determining what the final outcomes are and then planning assessment strategies and finally determining methods of instruction and assignments. It allows faculty to plan lessons and courses with a focus on student learning.

Full Time Faculty who have not had the opportunity to participate in this Course Design in Canvas program in the past are eligible to participate.

As a participant, you will receive a $1K stipend once you successfully complete the following (your work will be evaluated by the CTL team):

  • View/attend threeZoom sessions on course design presented by Jay McTighe. These sessions will be recorded.
  • Plan and create four instructional modules in one of your Spring 2023 Canvas courses.
  • Post a short video on further plans to use backward design when planning instruction.

For our past participants, we will need 5-7 of you to serve as group mentors. To qualify to be a group mentor, you must have completed the Summer 2021 Course design in Canvas course. Course mentors will be required to keep a log of the times they met with their mentees, the challenges they faced, and the accomplishments made throughout the Course Design in Canvas program. Mentors will receive a $1K stipend at the completion of the program.
