Curricular Design

Books and laptop on desk to signify curriculum

Join us in discussing innovations and best practices for all things in the curricular design realm.

The Curricular Design group’s mission is to provide members with a forum to discuss innovations and best practices related to the design, development and implementation of instruction in online, in-person and blended/hybrid classrooms. Our objective is to provide expertise to UNMC educators in sound curricular design practices, application of instructional theory, research, and tools and the utilization of appropriate assessment/evaluation modalities.

Members of the group may collaborate in various areas based on interest. Potential topics include:

  • Curricular design and development
  • New instructional technologies
  • Assessment of student learning in various settings
  • Evaluation of courses and programs
  • Theories related to teaching and learning

If you are interested in joining the group, please email the Academy for more information.
