Talking from my own experience I tend to build up the material as I develop
the course. You have to ask yourself what does the curriculum require? What
does the student require? What do you require? And somewhere you will find a
happy medium and some serious developmental ideas for progressing all.

Planning will help a great deal though not always necessary in some
circumstances. Experiment endlessly and be thankful for the time to do so!

All the best with it all
