Best Practices

Course design is focused on setting your students up for success and providing a quality learning experience. This means designing learning to give students transparency and clarity about your expectations of their learning, and their performance through assessment. It begins with backward design, considering learning goals first and moving on to aligning assessments and activities with those goals.
