This section covers the nuts and bolts of developing a teaching plan for facilitation. This corresponds to the Plan phase of the PDSA cycle. Find out how to distinguish between learning objectives and learning outcomes. Learn how to organise content and resources, and integrate formative assessment as well as evaluate the session.


Why is planning important?

  • A well structured lesson increases students' motivation and interest.
  • Planning your lesson ensures the content will be in tune with the required learning of the course.
  • Planning also helps to filter your content and prompts you to discard what isn't relevant.

In any good design, a planning process must first be followed. Ako Aotearoa has developed a useful guide to the process.
