Several Swarthmore faculty have participated in discipline-specific workshops for student-centered curriculum development (e.g, the HHMI Summer Institutes.) Such workshops typically last for 2 or more days. A main objective of the workshops is to provide a significant amount of time for participants to create and/or modify teaching materials, with guidance from experienced faculty leading the workshop, and with feedback from other participants.
The goal is for the new materials to be ready for use at the end of the workshop. Often teams of multiple participants from a department are encouraged to attend together so as to give each other expert disciplinary feedback on their work.
