Evolving teaching and learning

What are my course goals?

Now that you know what you are trying to achieve, it is important to state what your objectives are for the course redesign. For example:

As a result of this course design:

  • I will identify the underlying reasons for DFW rates in this course.
  • I will identify campus partners (CODL, CTE, Writing Center, Libraries) to help me develop critical thinking and engaged learning assignments.
  • I will implement scaffolding for large assignments to build on student abilities to successfully accomplish the required tasks.

Creating these course redesign objectives will help you decide:

  • your priorities for the course
  • indicators for success
