Different elements play a role in designing your teaching, whether this takes place entirely online, on campus, or through a combination of both (blended learning). One very practical way of going about this is by following the ADDIE model. This is a logical design structure, consisting of five phases, which is very suitable for use in a didactic context.

Phase 1: Analysis

Whatever form education takes, the core question always remains the same: how do you ensure that students acquire the necessary competences and how can they be assessed? You also have to take into account a number of specific context factors. It is therefore important to first reflect on some of these factors that will influence the design of your learning environment.

Phase 2: Design

On the basis of these questions, you can then start thinking about the broad outlines of your course

Phase 3: Development

Once you have a broad overview of your course, it's time to consider the practical implementation of the actual learning activities (both online and on-campus). 

Phase 4: Implementation

Once everything has been thought out, you're ready to put it all into practice (Implementation). Students will get to work in the learning environment you have developed – either independently or under your direct supervision – and you will give your lectures, all the while keeping your finger on the pulse through formative assessments. In the end, you will carry out a summative assessment to check whether the final competences have been achieved.

Phase 5: Evaluation

Of course, there will always be aspects that you decide to handle differently in the future. This may be on the basis of the results of summative assessments (exams or alternative assessment methods), student feedback in the context of quality assurance, and/or your own self-reflection as a lecturer.
