Curriculum Alignment & Course Design
EET provides instructional design services and support to programs for online, face-to-face and blended learning. As part of the curriculum development process that stems from a program review, a curriculum and instructional design specialist can provide ongoing support in the following areas:
Facilitating the Process
A Curriculum Consultant can facilitate a Curriculum Alignment working session with individuals or groups of instructors who want more hands-on support in course design. The benefit of a group session is the opportunity for instructors collaborate, share ideas and provide feedback to each other.
The curriculum team can provide instructors with a template to complete the alignment framework, but it is up to the instructors to maintain the document. The goal should be ongoing improvement, which might also include adding sections to the framework, changing teaching strategies, adding resources and continually seeking feedback from peers, students and colleagues.
