Course Design for Faculty: Instructional Design Basics

Course Design for Faculty: Instructional Design Basics

You proposed a new course and it was picked up! Awesome! But now what? How do you even start your course design?

Or maybe you're trying to help another colleague design courses, but you just can't figure out how to get them started?

This Magna Online Seminar is perfect for those of you who are just a little lost, a little confused, or really want a glimpse of course planning with a real-life instructional designer. This seminar will focus on the prep work that happens BEFORE the syllabus is given to students. Learn about course goals and how they should inform the assessments you design, and how those assessments should then inform the content you create and curate. Additionally, you'll gain insight on how all of those elements, together as a unit, should guide you as you write your course objectives.
