Curriculum & Instructional Design Support
The Quality of Program Curricula
The Lethbridge College Academic * Review Procedures Policy outlines the specific outcomes of a program review. It is important to review this policy and the associated Program Development, Revision and Approval Procedures before you start the program review process.
Ongoing Curriculum Support
A curriculum review is typically conducted every 5 - 7 years as part of the overall Program Development process, however the goal is for programs to assess quality and relevance on a yearly basis and make continuous improvements as part of their normal practice.
Programs may request support from the Curriculum and Instructional Design team to facilitate focus groups and curriculum discussions, guide survey development, and conduct interviews and input sessions as well as analyze curriculum related data.
Instructional Design Support
To support ongoing curriculum renewal and development, the Curriculum and Instructional Design team also provides support in course design, development and delivery for online, blended and face-to-face learning environments.
This support includes working with instructors, current industry subject matter experts and writers to design, develop and deliver course content and learning resources in multiple formats that meet both learner needs and industry expectations.
The Curriculum and Instructional Design Team works in collaboration with program leadership and other departments within the Centre for Teaching and Learning, Innovation (CTLI), such as Educational Technology, Audio-Video, Professional Development, Accessibility Services and the Library to ensure teaching and learning excellence is attained from the design stage to implementation.
All courses designed and developed with support of EET follow eCampus Alberta Quality Standards.

The Course Development Approval Process
Most Course Development requests are brought forward by the Chair or the Dean of a program no later than March for Development in the following Academic Fiscal year and are often the result of recommendations stemming from a recent Program Review or Institutional Strategic Planning.
The Advanced Leadership Team (ALT) in collaboration with CTLI leadership reviews all course development requests and makes decisions on how resources should be allocated.
