Abstract

A well-designed and constructed course plan or curriculum is an integral part of the foundation of effective STEM instruction. This paper presents a framework for outcome-based course design process and its translation into a semantic web-based tool; i.e., the IMOD™ system. This system guides STEM educators through the complex task of curriculum design, ensures tight alignment between various components of a course (i.e., learning objectives, content, assessments, and pedagogy), and provides relevant information about research-based pedagogical and assessment strategies. The theoretical framework is presented, along with descriptions and screenshots of the implementation of key features.
