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. For more information, see the Learning Outcomes page.
Keep the learning outcomes you write focused on the actions of the students. Include content-based, cognitive (based on understanding and attitudes) and application (skills-based) outcomes.
The outcomes will be articulated in the Course Outline (see the Course Outline Template), but should be reviewed before each course offering.
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.
