Summer CTI CRAFT Course Redesign Initiative

$500 stipend and support as you update a course over the summer

Have you been looking for support in course redesign? Do you have a unit that you’ve been wanting to make more exciting or relevant for students?  Sign up for our Summer CRAFT Program: Course Redesign: Adapting and Fueling Transformation. Following the principles of Culturally Responsive Teaching and using the new book The Norton Guide to Equity-Minded Teaching, you'll some inclusive teaching principles and demonstrate them in the redesign of a single course unit.  

With a combination of readings, online modules, and peer and mentor feedback, you’ll learn to support your students in leveraging their strengths  and drawing from their experiences with pedagogy like community-engaged projects, authentic assessments, collaborative learning and cultural wealth. You’ll leave with a revised unit, as well as the skills to update other areas of your teaching. You’ll share your work with the SSU community, and be recognized for your work with a stipend from the CTI.
