Presenter: Jeff Noblett
This informal plenary and Q & A session with Dr. Jeff Noblett, Colorado College's Associate Dean of the Faculty, is the first in a three-part series on designing an intensive learning course.
With the semester calendar just a few months away, planning for our first offering of January Intersession TigerTermSM courses is underway. Normally delivered over short periods of time, intensive courses can be academically rewarding for both students and faculty, and can be constructed to meet the same learning outcomes as their longer-term (semester, quarter) counterparts. However, designing an effective intensive course requires that we think differently about planning class time, designing assignments, interacting with students, and assessing student learning.
With 30 years of experience teaching 3.5-week courses under Colorado College’s “block plan,” Dr. Noblett will share with us his extensive knowledge of what works and what doesn’t in the intensive course format from a design and course delivery perspective.
This session is open to all RIT faculty, staff, and administrators. Please register here by April 15, 11:59pm
