“The key is that the components in the teaching system, especially the teaching methods used and the assessment tasks, are aligned to the learning activities assumed in the intended outcomes.”
(John Biggs, 2003, p. 1)
Instructors usually plan before the course begins and adjust plans during the course. Part of planning includes determining learning outcomes, drafting the course syllabus and analyzing the approach to take, such as experiential learning.
