Constructive Alignment in Action: An Imaginative Curriculum Symposium
Monday November 4th 2002, Centre Point Conference Centre London
The sensible idea of aligning learning intentions with the curriculum, teaching, learning and assessment processes and resources to support learning has been developed by Professor John Biggs. The idea is implicit in the QAA programme specifications and subject benchmarking which encourage curriculum designers to make these sorts of connections. It is also embedded in the idea of institutional learning and teaching or quality enhancement (Scotland) strategies. The idea of constructive alignment within the educational process cannot be separated from the managerial, resourcing and cultural environments and decision making processes of each HE institution. 
The conference will provide an opportunity to consider the connections, synergies and tensions between educational and organisational theory, policy and practice and to review research evidence for the impacts of the idea on HE teachers and student learning. It will also provide an opportunity for institutional managers, change agents and policy makers to reflect on the realities of alignment in a world of complexity.
