Curriculum Design

Claire Sauvé, Vancouver Community College

A framework and some practical tools to approach course and program development from an Instructional Design perspective.  We briefly discussed the ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation) Model and how it can fit into course and program creation and revision in Continuing Studies.   We delved into the design phase and participated in a facilitated Course Design Mini-Workshop, exploring Learner Profile, Goal/Purpose, Learning Outcomes, Key Concepts and Assessments. Finally, we discussed the Blueprinting process, which bridges the course design, curriculum development, and lesson planning.
