Course 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:

  • Course 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?

  • Great Beginnings: How can my ideas about education define and shape my course goals, organization, and response to student expectations?

  • Planning 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?
