The Launch Course Design Institute is an intensive, week-long, hands-on introduction to the teaching and learning community for new instructors at Brown University. Over the course of the week, you will have an opportunity to learn evidence-based practices in course design through workshops with experts and apply them to develop a syllabus for your upcoming course. There will also be time each day to collaborate with course development staff to help launch your course! For more details, see the schedule below.
