A Semester in a Month: Successful Teaching & Learning during Intersession & Summer Session
Teaching a quality intercession or summer course in a condensed format can be challenging yet rewarding. The goal is to create conditions where the greatest amount of learning can take place by providing quality experiences for students that are designed for a shorter timeframe. Identifying and using best practices for teaching in compressed formats will help increase the likelihood that these goals will be achieved.
This workshop will provide best practices for restructuring and redesigning a course without compromising requirements, rigor or curriculum standards. Participants will work with the best practices strategies to redesign and condense a 16-week course. Please bring a copy of a 16-week course syllabus with you to the workshop for this purpose.
Facilitators: Janet Shiver and Jaci Devine, Communications and Journalism
