Design Your Course (DYC) is a self-paced foundational program in course design for Illinois State University faculty and instructional staff. It is ideal for instructors who need to develop a new course or who would like to freshen up an existing one. Using the tenets of backward design, participants will develop a transformational goal and learning outcomes, which will then be used to create assessments and learning activities. This program also covers the content and design of course documents such as syllabi. Aligned strongly with ISU's signature Framework for Inclusive Teaching Excellence (FITE), this program aims to enable instructors to develop courses that promote the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
To complete this program during the summer, participants can expect to spend anywhere between six to thirteen hours per week, depending upon their college teaching experience. A $500 stipend is available to eligible participants who complete the program by May 1, 2022.
To successfully complete the program and be eligible for a stipend, participants must submit a finished course plan for review and a video or Teaching & Learning Symposium presentation by May 1, 2022.
Note: Instructors interested in developing an online course should register for Design Your Online Course.
