Course Redesign Institute

Every year, the Office of Innovative Teaching and Technology (part of the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment) offers a Course Redesign Institute (CRI). This intensive weeklong institute offers APU faculty an opportunity to redesign courses to produce better learning outcomes for students through the use of technology. Faculty participants connect with experienced colleagues, learn course design principles, get hands-on practice with cutting-edge technology, and walk away with the beginnings of a redesigned course plan.

Outcomes

Faculty members who participate in the CRI learn how to do the following:

Application Process

Faculty who are interested in redesigning their traditional face-to-face courses for blended delivery or in improving their existing online courses are encouraged to apply. Through a competitive application process, about a dozen faculty (full time, part time, and adjunct) will be selected to participate. Preference will be given to faculty who teach high-enrollment, introductory undergraduate courses and/or high-demand graduate courses and demonstrate basic technological competency or a learning posture toward it. The application process includes submitting the following:

Requirements

Compensation

Faculty members will receive an iPad and other valuable resources in exchange for their participation. Faculty participants agree to meet all of the above requirements of the institute; failure to do so will result in the return of the iPad to ITT. Successful completion of requirements will result in transfer of ownership of the iPad to the faculty member.
