Developing a Higher Education Unit of Study

Constructive Alignment from Learning Outcomes to Assessment

Constructive Alignment from Learning Outcomes to Assessment (or assessing what you actually want your students to learn!) In this course I show you how to write a unit of study for higher education that gives your students a successful learning experience. From writing quality learning outcomes, linked through content, to constructively aligned assessment items. In this course I cover:

1. Working with Bloom's Taxonomy as a unit of study planning framework

2. Biggs & Tang Constructive Alignment

3. Bringing it all together for a unit of study - writing the learning outcomes

4. Assessment as, of or for learning

5. What about the content?

I am passionate about education. My philosophy of education is the belief that all students have the right and ability to learn, and it is the role as educators to promote not only learning, but a lifelong love of learning. This has been the foundation of my own practice. It guides my approach to my teaching, my research and my life.

I have been working in education since 1987. I have worked as a teacher (K-12), lecturer, teacher educator, professional development coordinator, education researcher, educational/instructional designer, education manager, small business owner, and as a private education consultant.
