Winter Events & Institutes



January 8-10, 2020

This PBL workshop is for educators interested in learning about problem-based learning (PBL), both in its classic form and recent variations. We welcome those new to PBL as well as experienced practitioners. We welcome faculty, graduate students, and instructional support staff in higher education.

This workshop will demonstrate problem-based learning and model ways that PBL can be used effectively in all disciplines across higher education and in all size classes and will describe ways to adapt PBL to your teaching situation.


January 28-30, 2020

How do you make students’ learning visible in your courses? Learn with and from you colleagues about designing and grading engaging, effective assignments as part of this collaborative one-day event. The Winter Institute on Learning is an invitation-only event.



This winter course design institute will meet the same objectives as described in the above Summer CDI but with a focus on large introductory courses. Our institute will take place each day from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. We’ll provide coffee and a light breakfast, as well as lunch on all three days. All participants are expected to attend the complete program.

The winter course design institute is limited to 30 participants.
