Week 10: Course Design
Jill’s Summary
Constructive alignment: make sure learning outcome, teaching method, assessment aligned
o Backward design
1. Identify learning outcomes (enduring and core concepts/skills)
2. Determine acceptable evidence (assessment types)
3. Plan learning experiences and teaching (learning events)
Learning outcomes made of knowledge, skills, habits of mind/attitudes
o Use active verbs and make sure measurable when writing them
o Maps onto plan and program learning outcomes government degree level expectations
for which faculty determines how those expectations manifest within the field and plan
o Summative: assessment of learning i.e. grades
o Formative: feedback valuable, progress-oriented
o Must be aligned, scaffolded, valid (alignment, weighting, wording, etc.)
Instructional strategies How can I get my students to where they need to go?
o Knowledge transmission help them take in and retain information; efficiency; CLT
o Schema development constructivism; guidance; elaborate with each other
o Transfer and application move to higher-order thinking beyond memorization (apply to
different contexts); authentic assignments focused on application
Instructional materials
o Optimize intrinsic, reduce extrinsic, increase germane cognitive load (not too challenging
but still relevant, through transfer tasks and interleaving)
o Strategies: segmenting, offloading, signalling, etc. (Mayer article: MLMs)
