Section 4: Course Activities and Teaching Strategies

Not only do course activities align with learning objectives or competencies, they also provide adequate student-to-student and student-to-instructor engagement. In addition, course activities include clear and concise instructions and work samples, and they also employ varied teaching strategies and are of varying difficulty level. ​

Active learning invites students to interact with course content, the instructor, and their peers to enhance the learning experience. ​

A range of learning activities allow students to understand key information and apply concepts using critical thinking as activity level deepens.
