Abstract

In this workshop, participants will identify components of backward course design, apply Bloom’s Taxonomy in writing effective higher order learning outcomes, and start building a course alignment plan.

Description

Backward course design starts with writing good student learning outcomes (some of which should address critical thinking skills), then selecting proper content, assessment and learning activities. Therefore, aligning those components is essential. In this workshop, using pairs, small group discussions, and worksheets, participants will identify components of backward course design and its value in designing any course, identify the difference between learning objectives and outcomes, apply Bloom’s Taxonomy (in the cognitive domain) to effectively write foundational and higher order learning outcomes, and start building a course alignment plan.
