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 choosing an effective teaching style. Each course idea is unique, so individual follow-up appointments are also available and encouraged. Deadlines for Spring 2017 courses are approaching quickly, so early sign-up is advised.
