From these, develop course objectives, or subheadings that describe in greater detail the learning goals of the course.  You might do this right away, but it's often practical to do this in an iterative process, as you move through the following steps.  The best learning outcomes include action verbs such as construct, design, evaluate, assess, classify, or describe instead of behavior that is less observable such as understand, learn, or appreciate.  

Sketch the Outline

With a semester or session calendar handy, lay out the learning objectives into modules, units, or timeframes. Weeks are a common unit for courses (Week one we learn this, week two we learn that, and so on) but there are many other time frames by which to outline a course.  Connect these time frames to course objectives, and begin roughing in lessons.
