Course Design: constructive alignment
Published at : 22 Jan 2021
Constructive alignment is a powerful principle for educational design. It helps to design courses, curricula, and helps to make decisions on course activities and materials. Further, it can be used to explain the relationship between the course activities and assessment. Thus, whenever your students ask: "do we get this in the exam?" you can give them the answer based on the alignment of your course. Constructive alignment is coined by Biggs and Tang (2011).
