Outcome 4c: Plan a balance of instructional delivery and learning activities for your course.
In previous assignments, you filled out the first 3 phases of the course planning grid by listing your course goals, learning objectives, and assessments for the course. You will now add your intended course materials. Consider when you'll be able to engage students in actively learning the material and when you'll need to just present information directly. When you need to present information directly, what is the most appropriate method for the information you need to convey?
If you're completing the Course Planning Grid (Excel or Word version), you can now complete the Phase 4 "Activities," "Content Presentation and/or Pedagogical Approach," and "Materials, texts, or other support" columns to show alignment between your objectives, assessments, and instructional materials. Note that not every module will make use of all three of these columns. The expectation is not that you fill in every cell, just that you consider what is most appropriate for your course.
As you add to this document, you may feel a need to revise some of your earlier work. That's perfectly fine! The backward design process is a helpful tool to frame the development process, but you'll likely find yourself moving between these stages.
This section of the worksheet includes an 'Optional' area where you can discuss any thoughts or plans you have for incorporating the 'Hybrid' nature of fall courses. For example, are there course activities that will be difficult to complete online but could be done in a socially distant classroom? If so, how might you still incorporate any students opting to take your course fully online?
Note about this course:
This assignment was designed for the full version of the SIOT course. Since this version is just designed to give you resources, you cannot upload an assignment submission. However, once you've completed this document for all modules of your course, it can also can help you share your vision with an instructional designer. They can review the document with you, explore possibilities you may not have considered, and help you turn the plan into reality.
