A learning outcome is a clear and specific statement that identifies what students must demonstrate at the level and standard required to successfully pass their study at program and course levels. Read more here.
What are learning outcomes?
Learning outcomes are the outcomes you plan for your students to achieve by the end of your course. When you write learning outcomes, keep their focus on the actions of the students. Include content-based, cognitive (understanding and attitudinal) and application (skills-based) outcomes.
The outcomes will be articulated in the Course Outline (see Course Outline Template) but should be reviewed before each course offering.
For more information on learning outcomes, see Constructing Learning Outcomes (Curriculum Design).
Align learning activities to the outcomes
For each outcome, plan a series of activities to enable students to achieve the outcome or group of outcomes. It’s important to consider both the on and off line activities and ensure that knowledge and skills are coherently and incrementally developed using these learning activities.
Identify and explore solutions to confront environmental challenges
- pre lecture reading
- online tutorial: viewing six videos of a range of environmental challenges and responses
- reflective journal entries exploring these solutions
- tutorial discussion
- group assignment to establish environmental campaign site for an identified environmental challenge.
Use a 'Page' to present learning outcomes, or a 'Book' to elaborate on them.
