Designing Courses session at OLI

The Oxford Learning Institute are running the Designing courses session on Monday 20 April 2015 from 14.00 – 16.30. It is aimed at early career academics and those who have the responsibility to design courses or a series of classes or tutorials to fit within an existing course.

Designing courses is defined very broadly in this seminar. It includes not only designing new courses but also designing a series of tutorials or classes to fit within an existing course. As far as possible, participants will work during part of the seminar with colleagues from cognate disciplines.

Aim: To investigate the range of questions that are important to the design process, and consider what resources and approaches are available for seeking answers to these questions.

Learning objectives/ outcomes
By the end of the seminar you should be able to:

• contrast a range of approaches to course design and compare the limitations and possibilities of each;
• develop an approach to course design which is appropriate for the context;
• reflect on why the practice of iteration, adaptation and ongoing refinement can improve students’ learning experience.
