How to Build Your Course Curriculum (Avoid This Common Mistake)
Plus how you can work with me on part-time projects
“Start with the first thing students should know” is terrible advice when you're building your course curriculum (despite how intuitive it sounds).
Learning designers—like myself—will tell you that effective courses are outcome-driven. That means you should build your course curriculum by identifying desired outcomes, and then work backward to create the learning journey.
Watch my latest YouTube video to learn how to do that using a popular framework called Backward Design (timestamps are in the description):

Availability For Part-Time Projects
My course is up and running, and I’m excited to take on a new part-time project either short-term or ongoing. I’d like to help people with the same things I teach:
Goal setting and project management
Creating (or improving) online courses for customers or employees
I’m looking for a single client for 20 hours max per week. Alternatively, I can envision working with a handful of clients. I’d recommend we start by collaborating on a short-term project to get a sense of how we work together and what’s needed.
I’m open to collaborating remotely or in person (if the client’s in Montreal).
If you know anyone who might be interested, please forward this post to them or have them email me at email@example.com.
