13. CTE Teaching tip of the week: Thinking about Course Design

Event Type(s): Other

As you think about designing or redesigning your course consider your course alignment. Your course should have a set of learning outcomes for all students to master by the time they leave your class. As you look through your syllabus, make sure that your assignments, exams or other assessments are testing for those projected learning outcomes. Moreover, your learning activities (case studies, problem sets, etc.) should be geared toward your anticipated outcomes so that students can learn and practice them throughout the semester. This approach is also known as backward design. Keeping your course aligned can help to increase student learning and satisfaction.
