As the Liberal Education Committee begins developing Expected Learning Outcomes as part of the first phase of our Liberal Education Review process, we’ll be holding events to listen to your thoughts about what is needed in FHSU’s Liberal Education Program.
But… what are learning outcomes? Are they different from learning goals? What about objectives? How do student goals and objectives tie into larger programs, and the mission of a university? Are all these measurable?
The University of Connecticut offers an Assessment Primer, defining these terms, and illustrates their connectivity in an Outcomes Pyramid.
And don’t forget to come to our sessions to give us YOUR opinions about what our Liberal Education Program needs.
