Purposeful Planning

Developing a clear and purposeful plan for your course is integral to ensuring that your students are set up for success and also aids in minimizing confusion and stress throughout the duration of the course for yourself and your students. Purposeful planning simply implies that the course is designed with intention and care. 

While creating a course plan, it is important to consider the demographics and myriad lived experiences of your students. Content selection and assignment design can drastically vary the experiences of students in any course. Taking the broader context within which a student enters the classroom can help to ensure that students feel the course is accessible and equitable.
