Design Your Own Curriculum

We are dedicated to helping you make the most of your professional development time commitments.  In addition to the self-paced professional development options, TLOS: PDN offers support for Design Your Own Curriculum (DYOC) opportunities for credit. DYOC participants work with PDN Program Coordinator to develop a professional development plan to earn some or all of the required 12 hours of professional development.

DYOC plans must address how the activity, project, or research project will impact professional practice in the areas of technology-enhanced teaching/learning, research, or productivity.  Additionally, each plan should describe how mastery is demonstrated or learning assessed. Examples of assessment or demonstration might include:

  • a short paper, 
  • participation in faculty panels, 
  • or facilitating TLOS: PDN sessions for interested faculty.

To see if DYOC is right for you, sign up today.
