Design Your Course

UConn makes a variety of technological tools available to enhance your teaching, as well as staff resources to help show you how to use them.

Developing Learning Objectives

The first step in developing a course to define the intended learning outcomes. CETL provides guidance on how to create learning objectives for your course and to align the course activities and assessments to these objectives.

Creating Your Syllabus

The syllabus serves as a usual tool to let your students know what to expect from the course and from you, along with what is expected of them.

Teaching and Learning Techniques

Not all classes look the same. To achieve your learning objectives, a variety of teaching and learning techniques can be implemented.

Integrating Technology Into the Classroom

Technology can play an important part in a course. Selecting the correct tool can take time. CETL provides resources on which technology tools are best for different situations.

Effective PowerPoint Design

Designing strong and engaging PowerPoint presentations can take work. Along with our own guidance, CETL has brought in content experts for their guidance.

Hybrid/Blended Design

Hybrid/blended course design provides the benefits of in-person and online learning. The in-person time is spent on active learning and skills development, while the online learning is utilized for knowledge attainment.

Online Course Design

The online course design provides the learner with the flexibility of time and space. A well-designed online course requires extensive planning.
