Stage Three: Plan Learning Experiences and Instruction
The final stage of backward design is when instructors begin to consider how they will teach. This is when instructional strategies and learning activities should be created.
With the learning goals and assessment methods established, the instructor will have a clearer vision of which strategies would work best to provide students with the resources and information necessary to attain the goals of the course. Consider the questions below:
What enabling knowledge (facts, concepts, principles) and skills (processes, procedures, strategies) will students need in order to perform effectively and achieve desired results?
What activities will equip students with the needed knowledge and skills?
What will need to be taught and coached, and how should it best be taught, in light of performance goals?
What materials and resources are best suited to accomplish these goals?
