If you have dropped into this Course Design Tutorial from somewhere else, you might wish to start at the introduction, overview, or table of contents.

Part 1. Setting goals

This section of the tutorial consists of four parts with related assignments:
1.1 Articulating the course context and constraints
1.2 Setting overarching goals
1.3 Setting ancillary skills goals
1.4 Choosing content to achieve overarching goals

Begin by selecting a course or a portion of a course that you wish to design or redesign. The tutorial will work equally well with an entire course or with a portion of the course (e.g., the labs, a field trip, a topical section).

Go to articulating course context and constraints
