Aligned curriculum design occurs when you . . .
- set a clear target for what graduates will be able to do by the end of the program,
- design the learning so students are likely to learn to do it, and
- design assessments that check to see if students can do what you intend.
An aligned curriculum shows why what you offer is a program, rather than electives in another program.
This video expands on the Curricular Alignment model above.
