Teaching online is very different from teaching in the classroom — both pedagogically and technologically. During the spring 2020 semester, we shifted to remote instructor to meet an immediate need. As fall 2020 approaches, we can take a more deliberate approach to planning our course development. Your course will transform as you work to develop it — and what you teach your students in the fall will be different from what you teach your students in the future.
The course blueprint is an important tool to organizing your course outline, the content you need to prepare, the activities and assessments you need to create or adapt, and the tools you may need to use. The first step is your course blueprint, and an essential component of the blueprint are your course and unit-level learning objectives.
