About three years back I stumbled on the one-page dungeon model. I was very hesitant to like it at first. But the more and more I looked thought about it the more I fell in love with it. This simple outline of an adventure is a wonderful framework for a quality adventure. Moreover, instead of spoonfeeding you encounter after encounter giving you a connect the dots dungeon, you are given enough detail to spark your creativity allowing you and your players to hit the ground running.
I highly recommend giving one-page dungeons a look.
