This teaching essentials guide assumes that you, the instructor, have previously completed the design and development of the following items for your course:
- Course syllabus (e.g. text of course policies & expectations), use the inclusive and learner-centered syllabus guide
- Some course content (e.g., PDF files, videos, images), check that course materials are accessible
- Ideas for major assessments (e.g., quizzes, tests, project prompts, rubrics), use the assessment and evaluation page.
Once you have those items, the steps below will provide guidance for teaching at Iowa State University.
