Abstract: My teaching in electromagnetic theory consists of several different parts, aiming in the direction of the constructive alignment (Biggs 2007). The course goals are described as specific active verbs (required at KTH). The underlying assumption in my course design is that the students own work is the basis for his/her learning. Thus my designing of lectures, homework, quizzes and mid-term exams are aiming to direct the students own activities to be in course alignment, while focusing them to the key areas. I will illustrate my interpretation of course alignment by two examples, lectures with quizzes and with the homework/class-room demonstration exam chain.
