In week 1, we summarised the main elements that go into the planning of a course. They were:

  • Course context including the goals for your training and considering your target audience. You will have also thought about your course format and any contextual issues you might face.
  • Design and development, where you will compose Learning Outcomes, align them with the course content, start to design learning activities, and make an assessment plan.
  • Planning of the Delivery and Evaluation of training.

These elements were discussed in more detail in week 2, with case studies to illustrate different aspects. You will have started to think about how these different elements are applicable to your course.

Your peer reviewed assignment will cover all three of these sections, and we will ask you to write down a short summary of key elements under each heading.
