Course Development Resources
The office of instructional development in the Adams Center for Teaching Excellence supports faculty in designing and revising courses and developing new academic programs. Faculty may solicit the services of the resident instructional designer at any stage in the design and development process. Every new course or new program application is reviewed by the instructional designer before being presented to a college academic council, Graduate Council, University Undergraduate Academic Council, or General Education Council (New course and new program applications are frequently revised; please be careful to complete and submit the most recent version of each application). Other instructional development services include assistance with syllabus design and curriculum revision.
