jmUDESIGN encompasses an array of initiatives designed to guide participants through the instructional design and redesign processes.  jmUDESIGN begins with an intensive, 5-day summer institute succeeded by optional on-demand consultations.  The summer institute will provide participants with the skills, knowledge, and support necessary to foster a learner-centered environment. 

During jmUDESIGN, a team of experienced facilitators will assist participants in the principles, methods, and strategies of backward design and course alignment.  Each phase of the facilitation process is designed to model diverse pedagogical principles, ranging from learner-centered teaching to team-based learning (TBL). Participants are placed in a small group learning community for the duration of the institute, allowing for rich exchange and collaboration amongst peers.

 Participants completing jmUDESIGN will make progress toward many outcomes, such as:

  • Designing instruction that aligns learning objectives, assessments, and activities;
  • Articulating and justifying design and pedagogical choices; and
  • Fostering relationships amongst colleagues across disciplines, colleges, and ranks.
