When you offer a course, you are essentially promising your students that if they come to class, work hard, and fulfill all of the requirements you set out for them, then they will learn something valuable. It is therefore essential to make sure your course fulfills that promise.
In this hour, you will be introduced to a method of course design that will help ensure proper alignment of course objectives, assessments, activities, and policies in such a way that students are likely to learn and succeed. You will also be introduced to the knowledge dimension of Bloom's Taxonomy, which will assist you in determining the kinds of learning you want your students to achieve.
The principles we'll discuss also apply to those in charge of labs or discussion sections.
