Course 3: Course design, assessment and evaluation in higher education


Course description
This course explores teaching and learning in higher education with a focus on curriculum development and review. In particular we explore perspectives on course design, assessment and evaluation, and, through hands-on activities, address such topics as developing course plans and course guides, giving and responding to feedback, designing assessment tasks, assessment criteria, formal and informal evaluation, and grading practices. Engaging in, and reflecting on, curriculum review and design within the participants´ own discipline/subject areas is in an important part of this course.
