"This book is a sophisticated and insightful conceptualization of outcomes-based learning developed from the concept of constructive alignment. The first author has already made a significant contribution to the scholarship and practice of teaching and learning in universities...Together with the second author, there is now added richness through the practical implementation and practices. The ideas in this book are all tried and shown to contribute to more successful learning experience and outcome for students."
Denise Chalmers, Carrick Institute of Education, Australia

Teaching for Quality Learning at University focuses on implementing a constructively aligned outcomes-based model at both classroom and institutional level. The theory, which is now used worldwide as a framework for good teaching and assessment, is shown to:

  • Assist university teachers who wish to improve the quality of their own teaching, their students' learning and their assessment of learning outcomes
  • Aid staff developers in providing support for teachers
  • Provide a framework for administrators interested in quality assurance and enhancement of teaching across the whole university
The book's "how to" approach addresses several important issues: designing high level outcomes, the learning activities most likely to achieve them in small and large classes, and appropriate assessment and grading procedures. It is an accessible, jargon-free guide to all university teachers interested in enhancing their teaching and their students' learning, and for administrators and teaching developers who are involved in teaching-related decisions on an institution-wide basis. The authors have also included useful web links to further material.

"I would recommend this book to both new and existing lecturers who would like to learn more about constructive alignment but also those who would like some innovative ideas for their teaching, learning and assessment activities. The book is easy to read and the tasks promote reflection upon current practice. The further reading examples at the end of each chapter provide useful resources to continue exploring this area and some helpful annotations are added in some cases."
