Abstract

The purpose of this workshop is to introduce participants to the integration and alignment of content (or curriculum), assessment, and pedagogy (or instruction) for learning module, course, and program design and provide some essential methods for designing courses and curricula in this way. Rather than treat each of these areas separately, this workshop strives to help participants consider all three elements together in a systematic way. The workshop framing is an engineering design approach, that is to say, it begins with requirements or specifications, emphasizes metrics, and then evolves into preparation of prototypes that meet the requirements. Participants interested in developing rationale, and learning and practicing a model of how to align course content with assessment and pedagogy that they can use to inform the design or re-design of engineering courses are encouraged to attend.
