An important step in effective course design is the planning of your teaching methods. There are a multitude of ways to deliver learning activities and content. The method you use will depend on who your students are, how you want them to learn, where they are (if remote or in person) and what you want to teach. Depending on your students and their needs you will need to select the most appropriate delivery method. There is no one-size-fits-all design. The best approach is to use a combination of strategies that suit your teaching style and the needs of your students.

The decisions you make in how to deliver this content should only be made following a careful analysis of the teaching/learning situation, including your course goals, assessment practices and criteria, and the nature and backgrounds of the students. This means that decisions about learning should occur before decisions about delivery.
