Identify relevant and transferable skills and concepts

The first step in designing (or redesigning) a course is to identify the core skills and concepts that you want students to develop and master (Nilson, 2016). Begin by identifying the core skills and concepts that you want students to have long after they have finished your course, as well as the relevant and transferable skills that will help them engage in the course and succeed in subsequent courses and in their careers.
