Basics of Course Design

Authored by: Josie Baudier and Traci Stromie

Sometimes instructors may approach new course preps by assigning book chapters to specific weeks and then plan instructional activities one week in advance.  However, deep learning does not happen by accident or without intentional planning. Course design is something that instructors should think about as a systematic process. Before we begin teaching, it may be helpful to think about how to design a course that truly facilitates student learning.

KSU Peer Reviewer Training is now being offered for those interested in becoming more involved in KSU's internal online course reviews using the Quality Matters rubric. This certification will be delivered as a two-week online course and includes a review of the QM program and its guiding principles. We will examine the KSU review process, delve deeper into the general standards, and provide participants the opportunity to practice writing feedback and reviewing a sample course. A required F2F session, or a synchronous online meeting, will be scheduled with the group on a date that most can attend. Alternative arrangements will be set up for those who cannot attend the F2F session. This session explores the internal review process and application of the skills learned in the online workshop. Participants find this aspect of the workshop very valuable.

Flipping the classroom has gained popularity in the last few years due to the benefits for instructors and students. It incorporates many active learning strategies and student-centered teaching techniques. When you flip the classroom, students are held accountable for coming to class prepared and spend quality time in the f2f class applying concepts and material. Join us for a session on flipping the classroom to explore more about this topic and walk away with new ideas for your course.
