Setting-up module units
Break-up each module on a set of units. Think of a unit as a chapter in a textbook. Using the same metaphor, all units of each module and all modules should reflect the course aims and learning outcomes. For the development of each module aims and learning outcomes, take also into consideration the course aims and learning outcomes provided in the syllabus for the whole course. Write 1-3 aims for each module and no more than 6 learning outcomes for each module. As you write the learning outcomes, begin to think of the learning activities that will allow students to achieve them as well as the assessment techniques you’ll use to measure success. Following-up, the course modules template developed for RUCAS, formulate the module overview, aims, objectives, learning outcomes, and key concepts. An overview is a general introduction to the course, basically in a narrative form (between 100-150 words), perhaps supplemented by an outline and/or mind map. It may also include video and/or audio clips as well as graphics, slides or other images. The key concept is usually the main idea that you want to explore in the module. Select the most important concepts that every module in the course will deal with.
