Application: Models for Course Design
Your resources for this week present two models for systematic course design: Diamond’s model and Fink’s model. Supplement these with resources you find on your own, if you wish. Prepare an analysis of these course design models, comparing and contrasting them based on the following questions:
- How useful would each be in creating an effective learning plan?
- Would either model enable you to consider and plan new or different teaching approaches, and if so, how?
- How clear and user-friendly are the models?
- If you teach or have taught, how consistent is each model with your approach to teaching?
