What’s going on at USI – http://www.usi.edu/onlinelearning/faculty/online-course-development-program
Created a generic course topic to help show faculty how to develop or revise a course.
How would you get started?
- drafting syllabus
- research instructional materials
- creating lectures
- course objectives
guides material, activities and assessments
To come up with course objectives for your course
Format: excel or word both
Next step – module objectives
Small and discrete pieces
Modules can be confusing: weeks, units, chapters, etc.
- Specific objectives can be a good way to describe the small intervals
What steps does a student need to take to get to this objective? (refer back to formula and Bloom’s taxonomy. Make sure module objectives don’t go beyond the course objectives.
To get you from one point to another
Consider “authentic assessments” that are aligned to your objectives
Can also be an “assessment” since there is learning and doing something required.
red – summative assessment example (covers more objectives)
Can also create a worksheet for instructional materials for complete view of alignment.
