Course Design and Assessment offers design strategies, educator-in-action perspectives, and real-world suggestions for engaged educators, creating inclusive and meaningful learning opportunities and developmental student growth. With a brief history situating engaged learning among educational models, the book shows the vital and practical connections between an educator’s overall learning philosophy and their pedagogical choices. The authors unpack the definitions and practices common to engaged learning, exploring the assumptions educators make about students, teaching, learning, and instructional contexts that underlie engaged educators’ pedagogical decisions. Ultimately a vehicle for inclusive learning and transparent design, the book outlines pre-course planning steps, suggestions for adjusting the course mid-stream, and a thorough discussion of assessment activities with planning and implementation steps.

Critical Acclaim
‘Course Design and Assessment takes us from the philosophy through to the practice of engaged learning, helping to shape a pedagogy that is critical, creative and centred on learner outcomes. This is persuasive and practical text that is useful for those starting out, as well as experienced educators struggling with recent challenges in the education landscape. It is no surprise that three such distinguished educators have produced a book that we can all learn from.’
– Paul Hibbert, University of St Andrews, UK
