We will first invite you to consider the place you want your course to occupy in your students’ overall curriculum and lives after graduation and specific ways to get to that privileged place. We will also discuss basic topics (principles of assessment, backward design, Bloom’s taxonomy), more advanced ones (student motivation, lessons from the science of learning, student self-efficacy), and engage in hands-on activities. At the end of the five days, you will have designed or redesigned a course, developed a syllabus and a lesson plan, and applied the learning principles to your courses
