“When you learn, teach. When you get, give.” ~Maya Angelou
Many of us teaching in higher education don’t think about lesson planning. But creating a lesson plan can be important to a successful class and for student learning. Creating a lesson plan prompts instructors to identify learning objectives, organize course content, plan learning activities, and prepare learning materials. The process also prompts instructors to consider informal or formal assessment methods they might use to gauge student learning.
Algonquin College has several useful resources to help with lesson planning, including lesson planning templates. Check out their resources at the following URL: http://www.algonquincollege.com/profres/lesson-planning/
We hope that you find the resources we share in this blog helpful. As always, if you know of an interesting resource that we should feature, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org; we will of course credit you for the information you share.
