Text Box: I have a strong belief in explicitly structuring the short, medium and long term aspects of teaching.   My experience is that planning, implementation and periodic assessment processes provide greater assurance of success and a more positive learning experience.  I believe that as the cognitive demands of a course increase, so too does the importance of optimization of goals, implementation and assessment (Cohen, 1987*).   As such, I believe that alignment of these processes is not only of benefit to the majority of students, but also has a particularly strong and potentially very positive impact on higher aptitude students and, paradoxically, on less prepared or previously marginalized students as well.
