design that is part of excellent teaching involves, first, shaping course
goals and, then, applying the course goals to each class session. Some
resources and related questions within course design are these:
Planning: What questions do I need to ask in order to begin
planning my course, and then focus it, according to content, role in
the curriculum, and goals for student learning?
Beginnings: How can my ideas about education define and
shape my course goals, organization, and response to student expectations?
a Class Session: What decisions must I make so that each
class session reflects my course's "big picture," and then adds
and relates its particular elements through effective examples and
appropriate student activities?
