The purpose of this chapter is to identify critical design issues that are likely to arise during the establishment of new colleges and universities. Design represents the process of planning and discovery, which leads to the development of a product or system. In this case, the end product is an innovative educational system. There are a set of critical questions that organize this chapter. They include: What are the conditions that indicate whether a designer should or should not engage in the development of a new educational project, what are the relevant decision criteria necessary to build a successful design team, and what are some approaches for designing an OLC, curriculum courses, and non-course learning activities? This chapter is written for designers who are to be the owners of a new institution and designers who are assisting in the process but not owners.
