"What I like particularly well with the book is the structure and method it offers. Writing learning outcomes will become much easier in the future, using Mr. Allan's three-step model. I like the way he goes into details that are relevant for writing learning outcomes, and the use of examples. It makes it clear to the reader what is supposed to happen in each step. Each step includes easy adopting templates."Kai Roer
