Needs Assessment for Course or Curriculum Design
A new course or curriculum should be designed based on the needs of the students. However, often teachers begin a curriculum or course design project without first stopping to carefully consider and assess the needs of the learners. In this American English Live event, we look at the process of needs assessment. We review several methods for learning what student needs are, including a menu of different needs assessment techniques and options. Then we consider how to use that information in course design, looking at basic steps and choices in development.
