Get a jump on the frantic pace that often accompanies the beginning of the academic year by attending our Instructor Summer School. The Instructor Summer School is an all day event focused on course and tutorial design intended for faculty who teach courses that include tutorials and who are assigned teaching assistants.

We open the day with a session focused on integrated course design with particular attention paid to tutorial design and outcomes, the syllabus and assignments. In the afternoon, concurrent sessions will provide focused time to work on two of three areas: the design of your course syllabus, assignment design, or tutorial design.

The Instructor Summer School includes an interactive practical component; therefore, it is essential that you bring along a draft of your course syllabus, a sample assignment or series of assignments, and a plan for your course tutorials. During the concurrent ‘Practical Sessions’ in the afternoon, you will be able to choose between 3 areas of focus, with the opportunity to participate in sessions focusing on 2 of the 3. In these sessions, you will work on your course materials with peers, and with support from CTSI staff. We will finish the day with a session focused on working with teaching assistants to best support students in meeting your course objectives.
