Before you begin, read the official course description and program objectives for the course. The Chair or coordinator of the program for which you are developing should provide this to you. If there are no course objectives, you will need to write these according to the course description. Send the course objectives to the faculty chair or coordinator for approval before proceeding. The course description can also be found in the university catalog.
When you start the first stage of the process, analysis, think about the following elements:
- Audience- Who will you be teaching?
- Content- What will these students need to learn?
- Delivery- What are the delivery options?
- Constraints-What are the various constraints?
- Assessment - How will students show they've mastered the content?
This reflective thinking gets your development wheels turning.
Once you've completed your analysis, you're ready to move on to the next step in the Addie Model, Design.
