The Institute/Workshop provides Laurier educational with an opportunity to apply a set of instructional design principles and tools to a specific course or design project. A learning-centred, best practices approach informs the learning process as participants engage in individual reflection, dialogue with their peers, and design activities.
Each year Educational Development offers a Course (Re)Design Institute (CRDI) to full and part-time faculty. Since its inception in May 2006, more than 55 faculty members from a range of disciplines have successfully completed the program.
This hands-on intensive one-day workshop focuses on learning/course objectives, building toward identifying assessments and instructional strategies through a process of backwards design.
