Welcome and Overview

Welcome to the Garnet Valley School District Course Development Hub!

In order to continue to innovate, lead, and personalize learning for all students, our District has developed a 4-part “Student-Centered Course Design Process” that will support our ongoing work towards becoming a model Future Ready School District. The 4-part Student-Centered Course Design Process includes professional learning and work around: Instructional Design, Curriculum Design, Resource Design, and Course Design.

This site will provide you with an overview of and materials for supporting Garnet Valley's course development process. In order to personalize learning for our students, this multi-year, multi-stage process allows our teachers to collaboratively and authentically build curricula and courses that can be offered in three formats: Face to Face, Online and Blended.

*The stage in which a teacher or course begins will depend on where we are in the course development process, student need for the course, and teacher preference.
