Foundations of Course Design Intensive
Are you designing a new course or redesigning an existing course? During the Foundations of Course Design Intensive, we will work through the course design process and focus on 1) articulating your course vision and purpose, 2) developing course learning outcomes, 3) planning your summative assessments, and 4) outlining experiences to support student learning. The Foundations of Course Design Intensive prioritizes hands-on application and provides opportunities to receive feedback from peers and Trefny colleagues.
This intensive is offered during the summer and during the semester.
Teaching As Research Institute
Have you ever tried out a new strategy in your classroom and wondered how well it worked? Wanted to know which of two pedagogical approaches would be more effective? Or had a hunch that students who take your course in the spring need different supports than students who take it in the fall? If you are interested in systematically examining what’s going on in your classroom, please consider applying for the 3 day Teaching as Research Institute. We encourage participation regardless of discipline or prior experience with education research. After participating in the TAR Institute, you will be prepared to investigate the questions you have about student learning, motivation, or beliefs in your classroom, and the Trefny Center will be a resource for you in every part of the process.
Engineering Learning Intensive Course Revision Program
The Summer Intensive Course Revision Program was offered from 2016–2018 with the goal to systemically and significantly enhance teaching and learning at Mines. Each year, a cohort of faculty was brought together in a multi-week intensive to learn, work both collaboratively and independently to focus on their teaching, learn new pedagogy techniques and course design theory, and to significantly revise a course that was taught by the faculty member during the following school year.
