Course Design is an effective measure to regulate the curriculum for students along with adherence to the requirement for a course. For smooth implementation of a course design, it is necessary that the scope of a course is understood and parameters for quality learning are created.
A good course design will help students balance academics and extracurricular activities. Besides, it also helps one in having deep and impactful learning. Gone are those days when learning meant scoring good marks in academics. In today’s generation which is full of competition and technological advancements, it is necessary that students bring life to their learning- through societal impacts.
The course forms the foundation of basic learning in schools and colleges. Student-specific and student-friendly courses help attain positive outcomes not only for schools or colleges but also for the overall development of students.
The determination, of course, is a time taking work for the teacher or other staff members, and they account for many factors before finally publishing it.
Course design requires proper identification of the beneficiaries (students), the regional and situational constraints, adherence to the timeframe within which the course has to be completed, the requirement for assessments, following up with the good practices around the world, and the feedback mechanism.
An effective course design acts as a guidebook for the teacher; thus it becomes easier for them to implement the same on a daily basis.
