Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning (new)

When you offer a course, you are essentially promising your students that if they come to class, work hard, and fulfill all of the requirements you set out for them, then they will learn something valuable. It is therefore essential to make sure your course fulfills that promise.

In this hour, you will be introduced to a method of course design that will help ensure proper alignment of course objectives, assessments, activities, and policies in such a way that students are likely to learn and succeed.

This workshop assumes you are familiar with Bloom's Taxonomy and how to write learning objectives.  If you are not, please attend the "Writing Learning Objectives" workshop offered on November 9.  Please come to the session with some course learning objectives already drafted.
