This course will provide participants the opportunity to acquire the skills and knowledge to develop a systematic approach to curriculum development based on a training/education model. Topics include needs assessment, learning outcomes, course outlines, lesson plans and an introduction to choosing instructional techniques and assessment and evaluation techniques. Each participant will be responsible for developing a course outline and a lesson plan for content with which she/he has taught, is teaching, or would like to teach. Attention will be given to the integration of planning, learning styles, and to a lesser degree, instructional techniques and course assessment/evaluation methodologies. This course includes mandatory group work. We recommend viewing the course schedule immediately upon logging into the course to view course and group work requirements.
