Designing for Learning

Designing for learning involves the intentional process of planning programs, courses, and assignments to provide meaningful learning experiences to students and align with learning goals. Instructional design, backwards design, and understanding by design are among the approaches used for this process and for which we are able to provide guidance.

Often, designing for learning can benefit from collaboration. As you go through any of the design processes described below, visit the Teaching section for strategies and techniques to include, and reach out to meet with us at any point.
