Case Studies Course Design
In this module, our focus was on human development and adulthood.
For this assignment, you will design a course to meet the health and wellness needs of the age group represented by the adult or adults you interviewed in Module 1. Your topic for the course should be based on the data you collected in the interviews.
Create the course in a format of your choice for your response.
- Step 1. Identify the health and wellness topic and the title of the course.
- Step 2. Use the data from the interview you conducted in Module 1 to help you develop the health and wellness course.
- Step 3. Identify a learning environment appropriate for the age group.
Step 4. Design the course using the steps of The Learning Cycle, which consists of 7Es. As your design the course, identify where you will integrate technology.
