Aligning learning outcomes, instruction & assessment in academic english module
Misalignment of instruction and assessment creates many issues for teachers. To address this challenge it is recommended to use the Constructive Alignment model developed by Professor John B. Biggs when designing curriculum. In the presentation, I am going to exemplify Constructive Alignment model used to align learning outcomes, instruction and assessment in Academic English (AE) module. The stages in developing an alignment plan will be shared. Once the alignment model and plan were implemented into AE curriculum design, an effective teaching system was set which enabled teachers to engage their students into meaningful learning, consequently, increasing their motivation to learn.
