  • Understanding by Design (UbD) is our curriculum process.

  • UbD is a backward design process.

    • Beginning with the end in mind.

  • Example:

    • Going on vacation- you start by asking yourself, “Where do I want to go?”

The ubd process

The UbD Process

Three stages:

  • Stage 1: Identify desired results.

    • What will students know and be able to do at the end of a course or a program?

  • Stage 2: Determine acceptable evidence.

    • How do we know that students know it and can do it?

  • Stage 3: Planning learning experiences.

    • How will we get them to the desired results?
