Head, Heart, Hands Course Design

Curricular and course assessment is important to making sure our students are achieving outcomes that align with our teaching objectives for the course. It can also be really dry and take some of the fun out of course planning. Here’s a quick activity to think about objectives and outcomes by putting the students first.

With the head, heart, hands activity, you simply imagine what you want your students to think, know, and do during the course. It’s as easy as that. Course planning can often end up in us trying to figure out how to fit all the content in, so this activity just asks you to slow down, bring the students back to the forefront, and make sure what we plan will help them achieve what we hope.
