Awareness of the different paradigms and how they work together can support alignment of teaching and assessment approaches. When education practices do not align well with their originating paradigms, educational goals may not be met optimally.

In this section, we discuss the importance of alignment, the dangers of misalignment, and provide opportunities to think through how you might apply this concept in your own educational work.

Paradigms of Education OS is brought to you in partnership by the Centre for Faculty Development and the Centre for Advancing Collaborative Healthcare & Education, extra-departmental units of the University of Toronto, hosted at Unity Health Toronto and University Health Network, respectively.
