Six Principles of Course Design at Schulich
At Schulich, course design is guided by six foundational principles that inform all aspects of a course from the selection of impactful activities to the authentic assessment of learning.
We aim to design courses that recognize and celebrate the diversity of experiences and backgrounds of our students and instructors. Clearly articulated learning outcomes serve as the framework of our courses, around which all activities and assessments are designed. Our students actively participate in experiential learning opportunities and develop real-world problem-solving skills, as they make lasting connections with industry leaders. They are also encouraged to reflect on their learning to develop an understanding of their strengths and weaknesses and to develop strategies to continuously improve. Instructors do the same; they continuously build upon student feedback from each course iteration to design better, more effective learning experiences.
