    What is a Course Design?

    A course design process allows you to determine the learning outcomes students are expected to meet, the methods by which the students are measured and the learning activities that should be designed to help them achieve the learning objectives.

    How to Create a Course Design Template?

    • Start early by consulting with colleagues who have taught the same course and mark down techniques from their strategies.
    • Determine the goals for the course; these are the learning outcomes you want your students to learn and accomplish.
    • Select the course content; identify the major topics and decide the order in which you will teach them to your students.
    • Use a mind map to organize the selected topics and other information. Share the diagrams and collaborate to discuss the options.
    • Determine the structure of the course and organize the topics in a logical order with a course design template.
    • Link to the course design diagram from other documentation that’s created on the course content and assessment methods.
    • Embed the course outlines you have created in your intranet or other internal websites so everyone can easily access it.
