CTLs frequently rely on course design institutes (CDIs) to help instructors develop equitable and engaging learning environments. To learn more about the diversity of formats, suss out the most impactful elements, and identify best practices for development, we undertook a large-scale survey of CDIs offered around the US. From this, we developed a model that attempts to describe the essential features most responsible for high impact, or what we've come to call CDIs' "special sauce." Participants in this session will explore the results of our survey and our model, and discuss how those may shape their current or future CDIs. **SESSION WAS RECORDED**
