Course Redesign Institute

The goal of the Summer Course Redesign Institute is to jumpstart the process as CSUN faculty members redesign their face-to-face courses for hybrid, online, or technology-enhanced delivery. At the Institute, faculty from across the campus work alongside each other to:

  • Compare online/hybrid course design with face-to-face
  • Identify ways to incorporate technology into their teaching 
  • Select technology-based instructional strategies to enhance learning
  • Develop a course worksheet for your redesigned class
  • Apply best practices to redesigning course elements

Underlying the Institute is a set of nine design principles called QOLT (Quality in Online Learning and Teaching) which ensure that online courses are designed from student perspectives.

The 2014 Summer Course Redesign Institute will consist of two weeks of face-to-face sessions from June 6 through June 20 (9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on most days). Faculty will also receive personalized support throughout the summer. The program culminates with a Showcase in the fall where selected participants present their redesigned courses to the CSUN community. (Applications for Summer 2014 are now closed. Information on future programs will be posted when available.)
