    Designing Your Courses for More Significant Learning

    Thursday, May 7, 9:00 am - O'Connor Aud.

    Want Your Students to Learn More?
    Designing Your Courses for More Significant Learning
    May 7-8, 2015 from 9:00am-5:00pm 

    Most college teachers would like their courses to be an experience in which their students achieve some kind of significant learning that lasts.  But we feel frustrated and uncertain about how to get that to happen – for more students, more of the time.

    This workshop will (a) expand participants’ vision of the kinds of learning that are possible and (b) familiarize participants with a process for designing courses for Significant Learning, i.e., learning that truly makes a difference in the way students think, act and feel after college.

    In this workshop, we will:

    • Examine the place of instructional design in the “big picture” of teaching,
    • Take a close look at what each of us really wants our students to learn,
    • Work through the model of Integrated Course Design that enables us to systematically design significant learning into our courses, and
    • Conclude by looking at some case studies that address the question of whether this more intentional way of designing courses really makes a difference in the way students respond.

    Workshop Leader:

    Dr. L. Dee Fink is a nationally and internationally-recognized consultant on college teaching and faculty development.

    After receiving his doctorate from the University of Chicago in 1976, he accepted a faculty position at the University of Oklahoma.  In 1979 he founded the Instructional Development Program at the University of Oklahoma and served as its director until his retirement from Oklahoma in May 2005.  He was president of the POD Network (Professional and Organizational Development) in Higher Education (2004-2005), the primary professional organization for faculty developers in the United States.

    He is the author of “Creating Significant Learning Experiences: An Integrated Approach to Designing College Courses” (Jossey-Bass, orig. ed. 2003; updated ed., 2013) and co-editor of “Designing Courses for Significant Learning”, Issue #119 in the quarterly series New Directions for Teaching and Learning (Jossey-Bass, Fall 2009).
