Course Design

The best place to begin when designing your course is to focus on course goals and learning objectives. What do you want your students to know and be able to do by the end of the term?

Being learner-centered moves the balance of power from teacher to student. The role of the teacher shifts from that of content expert to facilitator. How has this kind of thinking influenced how you design your course?
