Wolf (2007) characterizes the design and development phase of curriculum design and renewal as the "visioning" stage. This is the stage where you envision how learners moving through a program will achieve the program's intended outcomes. In this stage, you begin by identifying the key attributes, or the knowledge, intellectual skills, professional or disciplinary skills, values, and attitudes you want your graduating students to possess, and then review the whole program to identify when and how students will develop those attributes.
