Course Design Principles
Let's build a course together.

Designing or refreshing a course?

In this course, we're getting back to the basics as we work together to build (or rebuild) a course together. Topics include creating learning outcomes, organizing with a course map, designing assessments, developing teaching materials, designing for active learning, and building classroom community. And because of the asynchronous format, you can re/build your course when you have the time, space, and energy.
