This workshop provides participants with foundations of course design, including writing course learning outcomes, planning student assessments, and selecting appropriate activities. Good course design practices can be applied to many types of courses including online, classroom, blended, labs and more. We will provide a theoretical overview of course design, practical examples and activities for participants to work through in their own courses while keeping student engagement in mind.
By the end of this workshop you will be able to:
- Communicate the overall purpose and intended student learning experience of your course
- Select a course design approach using pedagogical models/frameworks
- Apply principles of constructive alignment to intentionally align elements of your course
- Evaluate your course design before the course is taught
Please note: This course is part of the requirements for the Course Design badge. Once you have registered for this course you will automatically be enrolled to participate in the badge program. You will still need to register for any other optional courses that you wish to take.
