- I found that focusing on 1-3 courses each day was more productive than working on all of my courses I was taking in a semester; this allowed more time to intently focus on a few assignments, rather than 5-6 assignments
Wow, we are in t
he home stretch of the Course Design Academy. Great work to all teams as you move through the design process and finalize your curriculum maps. Keep up the good work, we are almost there. You all should be proud of yourself and the work you have accomplished thus far.
Great job teams! We can’t wait to see how these courses come together.
Please check out the Press Release about the Course Design Academy!

Hello Course Design Academy Team,
Congratulations to making it to Week 5!! Thank you for your hard work on your curriculum maps, the Indiana Department of Education was thoroughly impressed with the progress that teams have made thus far. With the strong foundation of your curriculum maps, I am eager to see the progress of the design process over the next several weeks. Thank you for your passion of improving online education for Hoosier students, this work would not be possible without YOU! We thank each and every one of you for your work as a teacher!
Happy Wednesday! Congratulations for making it to Week 4 and for submitting your curriculum map! Please take a moment to celebrate that feat and acknowledge your hard work within your teams thus far. As we move into revising our curriculum maps, remember the bulk of the hardest part has been done and you should be proud of your efforts.
Great work teams! Have a great and productive week.
Hello Course Design Teams,
CONGRATULATIONS on finishing another week of the Course Design Academy. Great work to teams who have already completed their curriculum map, they look great and I can’t wait for the Indiana Department of Education to review them.
I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing teams collaborate and effectively design their curriculum maps. The discussions in the Google chats have been great too, thank you all for your skills and talents in collaborating and discussing different ways for students to overcome challenging tasks that are outlined in the standards.
Additionally, I want to note how impressive it is to have teams comprised of first year teachers and teachers with 25 plus years of experience, designing these courses TOGETHER. It is incredible and adds to the diverse perspectives used in building each course.
Lastly, I want to welcome all of our new participants since the start of the Course Design Academy. Each of these teachers have jumped right into collaborating with their teams and have been a great addition to the Academy.
