It is helpful to create a map or plan of your course for both face-to-face sessions and online learning activities. This map is useful in planning your teaching, as well as helping students to understand the structure of the semester’s learning activities. It will also inform the Teaching Strategies section of your Course Outline.
Your plan can be structured in different ways. One common approach is to map the resources, activities, assessments and administration tasks against each week of the semester.
If you include in your plan such details as learning outcomes and estimates of student learning hours per component, it will become a helpful planning tool that you can review and revise over time.
