TLS Concepts and Course Design Series
Participants will develop an understanding of the principles of course design, enabling them to apply discussed concepts to their own teaching practice.
The Concepts and Course Design Series is a series of four interconnected workshops but each workshop can be taken in isolation and still be useful for your teaching. To guide thinking in these workshops, participants may wish to bring a current course outline/syllabus from a courses(s) you wish to revamp, or a skeleton course outline for a course you are thinking about developing.
