Description

It can be exciting to design your own course, but where do you start? In this module, you will go through the planning process to help you design a course focused on student learning. You’ll begin aligning your course learning goals, assessments, and teaching strategies, all within the context of the course, your students, and yourself as an instructor. You will get a chance to share your ideas in a discussion board, and receive feedback from your peers.
