The Basics of Writing Learning Objectives
Each workshop will be held in SEC # 115. Bring your own lunch.
This two-part workshop will introduce the participants to the process of writing effective writing learning objectives (outcomes, competencies). By mastering this skill you will improve your ability to teach because you will be concentrating on the expected student outcomes and how the student will be assessed. A learning objective is a statement of what students will be able to do when they have completed instruction.
