Course design should include consideration of the main themes of the course and their interrelationships. Creating outlines and graphics (flow charts, concept maps, etc.) can be useful in planning the course and illustrating its overarching organization. This process also stimulates reflection on how best to align learning goals, teaching strategies, learning activities, and evaluation of student performance.
