Designing your online and F2F courses can sap your time and energy every semester. Make this process less painful with the Backward Design. In this session, facilitated by IDC's Dr. Nedim Slijepcevic, we will go over the basics of Backward Design, an instructional design strategy which suggests that student learning experiences and instruction should be planned with the course assessments in mind first.

We will provide you with the lesson templates and other materials that should help you save time and energy in future course design efforts.
