Join us for a pair of two-hour workshops facilitated by Bev Bramble, CETL Instructional Designer, to be held on July 10 and 12, from  9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. in Marshall d’Avray Hall room 249. The workshops will focus on the following aspects of instructional design that have impact on university teaching:

  • Audience analysis (Data on undergraduate and graduate students that UNB and MPHEC collect will be presented and discussed)
  • Learning objectives or outcomes (statements of what students should know and be able to do, so instructional activities are designed to help them do so)
  • Research-informed instructional methods appropriate for the learning levels indicated in the outcomes
  • Research-informed formative and summative evaluation methods that complement the outcomes

The workshops will be mostly application activities and lots of discussion, with a few short presentations. 

You will work on actual content from UNB undergraduate courses (you may select one of four different subject areas) as a way of exposing the instructional issues involved in implementing the above instructional design aspects, then discuss with colleagues how these issues may be addressed in the courses you teach. 

Please register at the CETL Event Registration site. After you do, you will be contacted to see what specific things you may want from these sessions, to ensure they are addressed. Additional information will be provided prior to the workshops.
