OBTL and ILOs
On 19 January, CTLE held an online professional development seminar with a focus on effective course design, during which Prof. Rico LAM (Registrar) introduced academic quality assurance (QA) from an institutional perspective. Afterwards Prof. Katrine Wong (DCTLE) gave a talk in which she began with an outline of what QA meant in a higher education context. She then deconstructed the components in a UM course syllabus and talked about the significance of aligning assessment with intended learning outcomes (ILOs). She used her course ‘The English Renaissance’ as an example when explaining designing learning activities that involve LOTS and HOTS. (Download PPT) (Watch Video)
