Amid the challenges posed by the COVID-19 Pandemic, I took on the role of a curriculum developer with the task of revitalizing Tamwood College’s Digital Media certificate program. All the courses within this program were originally face-to-face (F2F), presenting a unique set of challenges in adapting to the circumstances brought about by the pandemic. In this dynamic environment, I undertook the responsibility of ensuring the program’s relevance and effectiveness in the face of changing educational landscapes.
Upon reviewing the existing courses, I identified numerous issues that needed attention. In an effort to address these concerns, I engaged in extensive discussions with instructors, collaboratively exploring the challenges and seeking their valuable insights. Based on this alignment, I undertook the task of rewriting all the course outlines and syllabi, ensuring that the curriculum not only met the program’s objectives but also provided an enhanced and more engaging learning experience for students.
Working as a curriculum developer and collaborating closely with instructors during this process was a valuable and enriching experience. The challenges posed by the pandemic prompted a thorough evaluation and redevelopment of the curriculum, fostering a dynamic exchange of ideas and insights. This collaborative effort not only strengthened the program but also provided an opportunity for professional growth and learning in the field of curriculum development and instructional design.
Below are the course outlines and syllabi that I developed for Tamwood College. These documents reflect my dedicated efforts in crafting comprehensive and effective guides for the courses, ensuring that they align with the college’s educational objectives. Each outline and syllabus is thoughtfully designed to provide clear direction and structure for both instructors and students. Through meticulous planning and consideration, I aimed to enhance the learning experience and contribute to the overall success of the educational programs at Tamwood College.
