Abstract: Increasingly, faculty members are tasked with designing online courses in their disciplines, which often requires new skills and considerations. This article pro- poses a process for the development of a new course to meet evolving require- ments of curriculum goal mapping, intellectual skills development, and student engagement. While these seem to be diverse considerations, an approach will be proposed that reveals a very realistic integration of these three elements into a cohesive and assessable course format.
