Computers and Programming is a core module for Foundation Year students at Keele University intending to progress on to study Computer Science. This paper details a three-year reflection on how this module could be better delivered. After several areas for address were identified, it was found that changes to the structure, teaching activities and assessment of the module, in keeping with the principles of constructive alignment, led to significant improvement in student assessment performance. This work was completed as part of the reflective portfolio for Keele’s MA Higher Education Practice Design and Development in Higher Education module.
