"Reverse Design and its Role in Curricular and Programmatic Articulation"
Catherine Baumann
Senior Instructional Professor and Director, University of Chicago Language Center 

Reverse design, also called backward design, is a framework for curricular planning that begins "at the end." Targeted outcomes and their assessment form the basis for making the many decisions that belong to the process of curricular design and development. In this workshop, a reverse design model will be introduced, and its components defined and described. Multiple concrete examples of how reverse design was applied to solve curricular challenges at the course, course sequence, and programmatic level will be shared.
