Chapter 3 extends the focus on "real world" implementation with advice about all aspects of engaged course design and development. In three major sections - pre-course planning, running the course, and post-course considerations - readers will be able to see myriad ways in which educators implement engaged pedagogy effectively. The chapter articulates the many pre-course design and planning steps that are critical to the success of the course and how creating student learning objectives (SLOs) and linking them to course learning activities is essential to student learning. It then turns to steps that engaged educators should take while the course is underway, followed by actions that engaged educators should take after the course ends. Throughout the chapter, the discussion connects assessment activities with the various planning and implementation steps, making the distinction between formative/developmental assessment and summative assessment. Finally, the chapter considers how this attention to assessment helps students and educators gauge the need for learning and instructional adjustments.
