Instructional design is the process a teacher goes through to plan and design a course, lesson, or session. Teachers need to take time to think through content, expectations, objectives, assessments, and pacing. To put it simply, you need to decide what you want students to know and be able to do at the end of your course, session, lesson, or activity and what you will ask them to do so you know they learned it? Below you will find helpful information to guide this process.

This OMERAD webpage explains the process for planning a course or lesson including overall goals and objectives, instructional activities, checkpoints, summary/closing, and pacing/agenda.

These OMERAD modules created by Christopher Reznich, PhD, Deborah Sleight, PhD, John Williamson, MA and Steve Yelon, PhD (former OMERAD faculty and staff) guide you through the curriculum development process. Modules include: Parts of a curriculum, Needs Assessment, Analyzing Feasibility, Designing a Curriculum, and Course Evaluation.

On this page you will find some of the important strategies you can adopt when creating your teaching videos.
