Course Design


All of our team members are skilled providers of consultations and hands-on support to instructors interested in improving teaching and learning in their courses by integrating technology. See our Approaches pages for our specific areas of expertise and resources.

Our design process for all approaches consists of three parts: consultation, sustained support throughout the course duration, and assessment of efforts. For the best results, we request that you contact us as early as possible (preferably several months before the course) so that we can properly prepare.

Stage #1: Initial consultations

Have a question about an upcoming course, need ideas, or want to get some help with an existing idea?  Book a consultation with us! 

Stage #2: Iterative instructional design / Ongoing curricular support

For the duration of your course, one of our team members will work with you to implement the proposed solution and design necessary materials or tutorials.  

Stage #3: Evaluation and next steps

After the completion of your course, we will evaluate the effectiveness of interventions, gauge student satisfaction and learning, and determine areas of future improvement / next steps.

See our complete process guide for details of what to expect.
