Classroom Teaching Tools: Preparing the Syllabus -- Identifying and Writing Effective Course Learning Outcomes
It is a New School requirement that a course syllabus to include a list
of student learning outcomes. By the end of a course, what should students know? What
skills will they have learned or improved? What will they be able to do as a
result of the course? Learning outcomes are not only
helpful for students, who better understand their learning, but assist
faculty in course planning. Participants in this workshop will be able to
identify course learning outcomes and communicate them clearly to students. The workshop is led by Carolyn Comiskey, Director of Assessment and Curricular Support.
All full-time and part-time faculty are invited to attend this
opportunity to gather together with fellow faculty. Please bring a copy
of your syllabus.
This workshop is open to members of the university community only.
