It all makes sense in your head.

**But whenever you try to turn your thoughts into an outline of your course, things get slippery.**

Suddenly, you aren't so sure anymore what to include, exclude, and in what sequence you should present the information.

**So, how do you approach curriculum design? Here's a 3-step process.**

### Step #1: Start with the transformation

Your course is taking your students from point A to point B. Let's define those!

Point A is the starting point, the status quo. What do your students already know and do?

Point B is where you want them to be at the end of the course.

### Step #2: Map the journey

Now, fill in the steps in between point A and point B.

**Think about what the first thing is people need to know and do? And then the next?**

For each step, consider three components:

**Mindset**: What do your students need to believe first to be able to accept the tactics and techniques that follow?

**Theory**: What do they need to know?

**Practice**: How can they take action right away and get a win?

### Step #3: Test it

So far, you've been making assumptions about what your students need.

**Put your curriculum to the test with a beta cohort or 1:1 coaching,**and take note of the questions your students ask.

Where do they get stuck? That's a sign you need to adjust.

**In the end, curriculum design is the union of what you want to (and can) teach and what your students need.**
