Abstract

Biggs' (1996) proposed a pedagogical model where "performances of understanding" specified in course objectives are used to systematically align teaching methods and assessment practices. The model was applied in a plant physiological ecology course delivered at a distance over the web. Students and instructor thought the course format helped learning and that the assessment model, the SOLO Taxonomy, was good. Everyone also concluded that the course workload was too great in spite of ample feedback to discourage such excess. The course may be viewed at: http://www.biology.ualberta.ca/courses.hp/bot431.hp/bot431hp.html
