7 Embedded Support Devices

 Concrete and Clear Objectives

  • Always start from the competences and the related competence level.
  • Describe in detail what your expectations are concerning knowledge, skills and attitudes, and coordinate this with the testing methods.
  • State the objectives that describe what result the student must achieve.
  • Objectives are teacher-independent. Be creative when you write these objectives by using teaching didactics, activities and content.

Make sure to use active verbs to describe objectives. You can find many lists of active verbs on the internet, for example: Sample verbs, List of verbs or Blooms Taxonomy.


Quotations and References

Use the APA format[1] for quotations and references consistently, as the students are to use this for their Bachelor’s thesis as well. Best refer to an up-to-date reading list (e.g. sources from 2007).


Up-to-Date and Relevant Content

Write your study materials as a team, or have your colleagues or experts from the professional field review it. That way, the content of your study materials can be drawn up in function of the competences aimed at.


Guided Self-Study

  • Test your study materials for guided self-study against all minimal quality requirements.
  • Include tips for study and evaluation in the syllabus as well.
  • Pay particular attention to examples and assignments that allow to process the learning contents on a deeper level. Provide correction keys and/or feedback moments.
