What is the Agile Teaching Academy?
The Agile Teaching Academy is an asynchronous course aimed at helping faculty design a highly adaptable and inclusive course. Faculty will think through important design considerations over the course of four modules and will explore questions such as:
How can I design course components for maximum flexibility, regardless of teaching format or location?
How can I organize my course for maximum student success?
What is a good assignment and assessment structure for a flexible, inclusive course?
How can I align instructional activities and assessments to learning goals to ensure my students are mastering important objectives?
Am I making teaching choices that are inclusive of a wide range of student needs in a flexible environment?
Agile Teaching Academy is offered in two delivery modes:
- Facilitated Agile Teaching Academy: Participants interact with each other over the course of four modules as they consider design elements to enhance their existing course. Although this is asynchronous, there is a predictable structure for interaction and participants work with learning team members to give and receive feedback related to course design. The next facilitated Agile Teaching Academy will be held June 5 - 30, 2023. Participants who complete the Academy are eligible for a $500 stipend. Deadline to complete the application is Sunday, April 30th.
- Self-paced Agile Teaching Academy: Participants can self-enroll in this asynchronous, self-paced course to access resources at a time convenient for them. To enroll in the self-paced Agile Teaching Academy, please follow these steps.
