Brief overview:
The aim of this workshop is to provide participants with both knowledge and strategies to develop evidence-based, research-led approaches to learning and teaching within an outcomes-based framework.  It uses an applied, and process-based approach so that participants will be able to apply the concepts to their own course design and delivery.  It is recommended that participants bring along a course outline/syllabus to work with during the session.

Learning outcomes:
Upon successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

1.Discuss issues in course design in higher education, including the shift in focus from 'teachers and teaching' to 'students and learning'

2.Build upon their current level of knowledge and skills in course design and delivery including:
- identifying and writing of aims and learning outcomes
- designing learning and teaching activities aligned with the learning outcomes
- designing aligned assessment strategies to assess levels of achievement of the learning outcomes
- using technology as appropriate in an aligned and pedagogically determined manner
