Course Design Boot Camp

Faculty and leaders at worktables in design/engineering space

Boot Camp Overview

Led by Stanford faculty colleagues and Center for Teaching and Learning staff, this 22-hour seminar provides assistant professors (preference to those in their first three years at Stanford) with a collaborative and immersive environment in which to design or modify a course while simultaneously helping to optimize student engagement and learning.

2013 Boot Camp

In early September 2013 (September 5, 6, 9, & 10), participating faculty will apply research on teaching and learning to the development of a syllabus and/or selected class materials for one of their Stanford courses and will explore teaching strategies best suited to their course goals. Guest presenters include Stanford professors from a range of disciplines, as well as staff colleagues from the Office of the V.P. for Online Learning. 

Past participants have given Boot Camp rave reviews, noting both that stress around teaching was reduced and that they were now focusing "teaching energy" in much more productive and efficient ways.  As one professor noted, “It really was a transformative event for how I think and approach teaching.”

This event has the strong endorsement of the Deans of H&S, Engineering, and Earth Sciences as well as the Vice Provosts for Undergraduate Education, Graduate Education, and Faculty Development and Diversity.
