First of all, thank you to everyone that replied to my call for help. I will be responding to your emails soon. Apparently, there was a mix-up in the department, and someone forgot to mention to me that another instructor is already teaching a very similar class next semester. Needless to say, I will not be teaching this course after all, but there's a silver lining in that at least I have a better idea on how to develop this course if I'm ever given the opportunity to do so. Again, thank you to all who reached out to me.
