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.
Faculty will receive:
Access to asynchronous resources, case study examples, peer review and one-on-one support as they update their course.
A $500 stipend for completing all requirements
Faculty should plan to:
- Attend our May kickoff, Wednesday, May 24th 10:30 am-12 pm on campus in Marsh Hall.
- Plan a second, one-on-one consult with a faculty or staff mentor before July 31st
- Work through Modules 1-4 of our course redesign Canvas course, which will include readings, case studies, peer review and application in your own course (schedule below). Plan on 2-5 hours per unit.
