Startup Workshops and Deadlines

Wondering how to start a student-facilitated course?

Attend a StartUp Workshop!

Designing, proposing and facilitating a 98/198 course for your peers is exhilarating, intellectually and personally challenging, and vastly rewarding. These 90-minute workshops provide an overview of the campus process and requirements for starting a student-facilitated 98/198 course. We'll also wade into the topics of courses design, syllabus creation and developing your pedagogical approach. Each course idea is unique, so individual follow-up appointments are also available and encouraged.

We'll address procedural and pedagogical matters such as:

  • Requirements for starting a student-facilitated course,
     including campus policies and deadlines
  • Elements of sound course design
  • Identifying a faculty sponsor
  • Completing the Course Proposal packet
  • Writing a syllabus
  • Preparing for your role as facilitator
  • Resources and funding available to you for your course
  • Reserving a room, obtaining CCNs and other logistics
  • Publicizing your course and managing enrollment
  • Strategies for maximizing student egagement in your course
