  • "How can we make sure our students learn what we want them to?" is the number one question in teaching. This paper is intended to provide the reader with: (i) a general answer to this question based on The Theory of Constructive Alignment by John Biggs; (ii) relevant insights for bringing this answer from theory to practice; and (iii) specific insights and experiences from using constructive alignment in teaching model-based design for concurrency (as a case study in implementing alignment).
