This chapter discusses course design. Teachers are required to design courses, syllabi, and lessons; activities, assignments, and assessments. This also includes a variety of teaching materials, from handouts to websites. Ultimately teachers are responsible for designing the kinds of experiences students will have in the classrooms. The chapter thus considers the primary pedagogical design responsibilities: courses, syllabi, units, and lessons; activities, assignments, experiences, and assessments. These design elements encapsulate the teacher's purpose in the classroom and reflects their pedagogical goals and how they might best be achieved. The key is to align them coherently with one another and with course learning goals.

Keywords:   course design, syllabi, lesson design, course learning goals, teaching materials, pedagogical goals, pedagogical design, student experiences
