Each day will consist of morning sessions where we will present and discuss information on that days topic(s). In the afternoons, participants will have the chance to work on the aspects of their courses that were discussed during the morning session, with the assistance of members of the GMCTE staff. Participants will also share what they are working on with each other to gain valuable feedback.
- A final reflective piece will need to be completed at the end of the week.
- An additional meeting between the CDI instructors and the participants will be arranged at a later date to check-in on how these courses are proceeding and answer participants questions that have come up since the CDI.
- A portfolio of the course (syllabus, reflections on how and why decisions were made related to assessments, teaching strategies and the overall process) will need to be completed by the following May. Details about this will be discussed during the CDI.
