Course Description

This course is designed to introduce educators to the planning, development, implementation and evaluation of learning environments with contextual relevance to schools and students.

Educators will be introduced to the theories, concepts and practices for designing learning environments, introducing them to key principles, issues and topics in the field of learning environment design, from theoretical and practical perspectives.

What you will learn

After exploring these content areas, you will be able to develop curriculums that can be deployed immediately to your learning context. As a form of practice, you will carry out a capstone project at the end of the course to demonstrate your learning.

Learning Environment

We will start by exploring what the learning environment is and how different components fit into the curriculum planning.

How you will learn

Our learning model is learner-centred and collaborative. You will learn through different opportunities as made available in the course. Here are some of those opportunities:

You will learn through video content that is self-paced. This means that you will determine the speed, location and time at which you learn.

You will also have access to reading materials that will deepen your understanding of the concept being taught.

Our learning platform gives you the opportunity to interact with your fellow educators on the course and share your learnings with one another.

At the end of every module, there is a reflection question that you will engage with. Through this engagement, you will be able to apply what you have learnt to real life scenarios.

At the end of the course you will engage in a capstone project to test your knowledge and put your newly acquired expertise into use.

At the end of the course, once you satisfy all requirements, you will receive a certificate of completion to show your new acquired competency.

Digital Lesson Planning course is a fantastic Teacher learning program. The truth is most educators abhor lesson plans. However, after taking this course, I was able to create and fall in love with lesson planning, and now I am very good at it.

I see the course on Building Tests Online as an eye opener to new ways of conducting quizzes and online test using MS forms. This is really enlightening. Simplified and very easy to understand. Every Educator should definitely take this course even as a refresher course.
