The first step to designing and teaching a concept, a lesson, or your entire course is determining the learning outcomes: what must a student be able to do to demonstrate they understand at the level of your course? CTL consultants look forward to helping you define what learning means in your course.
It’s one thing to teach a lesson with specific learning outcome; another thing entirely is whether or not students learned it. Every learning outcome in your course should have accompanying assessments, both summative and formative. CTL consultants will help you create assessments aligned to your outcomes.
With a learning outcome to aim for and a way to assess how much students are learning, you’re ready to select an instructional strategy tailored to supporting students achieving that outcome. CTL consultants can help you find and implement evidence-based instructional strategies.
Learning technologies can enhance the learning and experiences of students and instructors. It’s important to start with a “pedagogy first” approach: what reliable tools exist that support the learning outcomes, assessment, and instructional strategies you’ve selected for your lessons? The CTL e-Learning team is ready to help you find solutions and implement them.
