Making progress

Making progress comprises (re-)designing education as well as keeping track of results.
But how can you know that you are making progress?

Summarizing the general process of educational design and specific models for curriculum re-design we propose the following three-step approach:

Step 1. Reformulate the (university’s) objectives into questions concerning
a) the current situation (today); and
b) the desired situation in the future

Step 2. Make the answers to the questions measurable

Step 3. Use the answers as input for further (re-)design

Examples of questions (step 1) and measurable answers (step 2) are provided for each educational theme:
