Course Design Tutorials

Are you starting a course from scratch? Are you redesigning a course that needs some fine-tuning? Or are you in need of some information and resources to make your course student-focused?

Our Concepts and Course Design lessons will lead you through the information as well as practice activities that you can apply toward creating or recreating a course that is well-balanced and student-focused.

At any time if you are interested in meeting with one of our Educational Developers to discuss the course design process or any of its individual elements, please email ctl@ualberta.ca to set up an individual appointment.

The goals of the Concepts and Course Design lessons are to:

  1. introduce principles of course design, enabling participants to apply the concepts of course goals, learning outcomes, instructional strategies, assessment, and alignment to their teaching practice.
  2. encourage reflective practice as a continuous aspect of improving teaching and student learning.
  3. provide research-informed tools and strategies to assist participants in creating engaging learning-focused activities.
