Abstract

The purpose of this design case is to report on the design of a course template to be used for institutional training at a public university in Turkey and to be published on the in-house learning management system of the university. Following a detailed description of the design context, the step-by-step design process is explained in detail with supplementary visualizations. Although several limitations such as the need for improving the characteristics of the design for more interactive activities and for formative and process-oriented assessment, and a more detailed external evaluation are still apparent in the design, this design case highlights the critical role of collaboration both within the design team and with the authorized institutional bodies to ensure a practical training course template design. Finally, results from this design case suggest that providing the tool and the content would not be sufficient alone if not accompanied by the support and collaboration of all parties involved in the process.
