Course Design

What do you need?

  • Is your program or college considering a curriculum redesign?
  • Do you have a course that needs an update?
  • Are you a new instructor or faculty member seeking guidance with regard to course design?
  • Are you looking for new ways to effectively integrate technology in to your teaching?

Employing effective instructional design can ensure that:

  • your course matches your students' needs
  • your learning outcomes are clearly stated, and are measurable
  • you are optimally employing a variety of teaching and learning strategies
  • your assessment matches your previously established outcomes


If you are planning to create an online course, dedicated services are available through the Distance Education Unit. If you require consultation or full video production support for your course contact Media Production.

Events and Workshops

U of S instructors can apply to join a Course Innovation Community.

The CIC is a carefully designed sequence of workshops for selected applicants to actively participate in a cohort of their peers to progress together. They will also receive $3,000 in funding that will be transferred to their home unit.
