Learning that Matters: the Course Design Institute — Registration now open!
August 4 – 7 | The Washington Center for Improving Undergraduate Education at The Evergreen State College | Olympia, WA
Set on the lush, forested campus of The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, Learning that Matters: the Course Design Institute offers faculty an opportunity to pause from normal routines to focus deeply on meaningful course design. During this four-day, resource-rich institute, faculty will find themselves supported and inspired as they develop and design courses that address the needs of diverse students within the contexts of their unique teaching environments.
Our team of expert facilitators and authors of the book Learning the Matters: A Field Guide to Course Design for Transformative Education will guide participants through activities, workshops, and consultations to realize the kinds of courses that will energize their teaching and engage their students. (See complete schedule here for additional details on Institute activities.)
Participants can enjoy a range of attractions, dining, and activities in downtown Olympia from accommodations at Red Lion Inn and Suites, Governor Hotel. (See additional information about Travel and Lodging here.)
