About the Event

In the webinar, participants will be provided with an overview of the differences between degree program outcomes and course specific learning outcomes. Then, we will take a deeper look at learning outcomes and the criteria we should address when writing learning outcomes for course syllabi. Participants will also be given the opportunity to analyze poorly written learning outcomes and discuss how they could be improved. The webinar will end with a “Think-Pair-Share” activity. Participant are welcome to bring their course syllabi to the webinar. The main outcome of the webinar is for participants to be able to write appropriate learning outcomes for their course syllabi.
