The third part of your assignment will outline your plans for delivery and evaluation of the course.

Delivery plan

You should answer some of these questions most relevant to your course:

  • Who will deliver the course? How will they coordinate with and support each other?
  • Learning strategies and teaching strategies. What will you put in place to encourage active learning and student centred approaches suitable for adult learners?
  • What resources do you have available and how will you use them?
  • What technology will you use and how?
  • What are the individual, systematic and contextual barriers that may make it hard for learners to fully benefit from the course? How will you design the course to be as accessible as possible for all learners?
  • Is the course appropriate for the context and the audience? Especially if the course is interdisclipinary, how will you tailor the material to learners from different backgrounds?

Evaluation plan

How will you measure whether the course has achieved your objectives? Remember the principles of evaluation from Week 1.

Your assignment should cover some of these topics:

  • What is the main evaluation question (what do we want to find out about the course)?
  • How will you collect, analyse and report the data in an ethical and rigorous way?
  • What will you do with the findings of your evaluation?

Use the discussion area to report what you think will be the biggest challenge in designing and delivering your course. Offer some suggestions to other learners for how they might overcome challenges.
