In this module, faculty learn how to write course learning outcomes that effectively define what students will know and be able to do at the end of a course. The module introduces a set of steps for writing outcomes that are student-centered, actionable, specific, sequenced from foundational to more complex, and aligned—when appropriate—to program, department, and institutional outcomes.
To satisfy the module requirements, faculty must apply the recommended techniques to write new learning outcomes or revise their existing learning outcomes.
