Course Building on Hope4Families

Danica Joan · January 12, 2022

Successful courses require careful planning and continual revision. In this course, we are going to explain the flow process on how to make your own course here in Hope4Families.

Define course goals

Determining the goals for the course will clarify what you want the course takers to learn and accomplish. Having these course goals in mind will then help you make decisions about which content to include, which teaching methods to use, and what kinds of lessons and exams are appropriate. For a useful introduction to curriculum planning that begins with defining goals for learning, rather than with course content.

When you define the course goals, focus on learning. One way to formulate these goals is to determine what your readers should be learning in terms of content, cognitive development, and personal development. Be as specific as you can and make sure that the goals define learning in ways that can be measured. Consider the following questions:

  • What do you want your readers to remember from your course in 5-10 years?
  • How should taking your course change your readers?
  • What skills should a person gain in this course?
