Welcome to the Course Design Module

Welcome to Course Design, an online module in the Supporting Student Success Series, developed by the IUPUI Office for Professional Development.

Instructors are constantly looking for ways to develop a better course. There are a variety of ways to enhance a course, but many faculty find it helpful to revisit basic course design principles to ensure that all the pieces of the course are congruent. Whether you are redesigning or refining an existing course or developing a new course, this module should help. It focuses on four steps in course design: knowing your learners, writing learning objectives, aligning assessment strategies, and selecting course activities. You may find this module more helpful if you focus on applying it to a specific course.

In this module, the goal is to assist you in implementing the course design process into your professional practice without feeling overwhelmed. Citations for appropriate references are found in the module. A complete listing of references is available.

As questions arise, please discuss them with your colleagues or a consultant at your local center for teaching and learning. IUPUI faculty may contact the IUPUI Center for Teaching and Learning to discuss questions.
