This session will show how to write learning outcomes that are useful to the student and essential for faculty who want to improve student learning and assessment in their courses. Writing observable and measurable outcomes is not a difficult task once you learn the process to follow. By the end of this session, participants will be able to distinguish between content, learning activities and learning outcomes and apply the three-step process for writing observable and measurable learning outcomes.


This presentation was given by Eli Collins-Brown, from the Office of Faculty Development at Western Michigan University, at the WMU Assessment in Action Conference 2016 on April 8. The supplemental materials for the session are also provided here.
