Course Design Institute or Active Learning Fellowship: Which One Is Right For Me?

CDI participants doing an activity

This spring, Duke Learning Innovation has two great opportunities for Duke faculty to create a course that inspires students to learn and engage with a subject: the Course Design Institute and the Active Learning Fellowship. Both provide the time and space for faculty to do work on a course, use evidence-based approaches, introduce participants to a community of colleagues from many disciplines, and come with free lunch (of course).

But how do you know which one is right for you?

We’ve developed this guide to the differences between the Course Design Institute and the Active Learning Fellowship to help you decide. (And if you’re still not sure, contact us and we’ll help you figure it out.)

Then, apply for the Course Design Institute or apply for the Active Learning Fellowship! Applications for both are due March 6, 2020.
