  • Weeks 4 and 5 - Module 4:

    Creating a course plan

    In the last two modules you did a lot of the high level thinking in terms of the context of your course and you lay the groundwork to get started with the more concrete planning stage as you developed a course blueprint. This module is organized into two main topics:

    1. Planning for Alignment and Engagement: a book that will guide you throught planning learner engagement activities as you streamline learning objectives and draft assessment and self-assessment strategies.
    2. Course Structure: Content and Resources: a book that will guide you through sequencing the content, identifying learning resources and creating a course structure.

    5. Use Open Educational Resources to support teaching and learning in blended and online courses.
