Professional Development on Backward Design

Client: Bridgerland Technical College

Type: E-Learning 

Tools: Canvas

About this project

Bridgerland Technical college tasked my team with designing a Canvas module that taught the Backward Design model to instructors without any educational background.

They asked for a non-academic, "stripped down" text-heavy course. They requested limited use of images. They asked for videos to be used as little as possible and only if they were a supplement. In addition, we were asked to provide big ideas at the top of each page. Working within these many constraints, we created a course.

I created course objectives, the arrow graphics, developed content for the assessment and activities sections, functioned as a SME on Backward Design, designed the pages, created the "car" scenario example, and edited content in other sections.

The course was handed over to Bridgerland to be used as a basis where they would add in video and images, complete user-testing and further iteration cycles in the future.
