Writing Effective Learning Outcomes
Tuesday, October 2, 2012    10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Teaching Support Centre, Room 122, The D.B. Weldon Library

Clear, effective learning outcomes are the foundation of a great course. Join us for a hands-on session to gain experience in writing clear, measurable learning outcomes for an entire course, a two hour tutorial, short lab or guest lecture; and begin to think about how you could find out whether your students achieve these learning outcomes and learn what you want to teach them. Before the session, identify a topic that you have taught about or will teach about in the near future - you will practice writing learning outcomes associated with this topic during the session.
