Overview

A unique book and an excellent book written by an author of unparalleled reputation. Of all the literature on course and curriculum design I have read, none comes close to the level of advice provided in these pages. Highly recommended for faculty at every level.

?Howard B. Altman, director, linguistics program, University of Louisville

Designing and Assessing Courses and Curricula reflects the best current knowledge and practice in course and curriculum design and connects this knowledge with the critical task of assessing and learning outcomes at both course and curricular levels. Tested and refined through long-term use and study, the change model presented in this book shows how to move from concept to actualization, from theory to practice.
