    • Limited number of programs and offices at start-up
    • Absence of legacy or standing processes and structures
  • Disadvantages to starting from scratch
    • Absence of legacy or standing processes and structures
    • Each individual brings a different set of assumptions and expectations
    • Rapid growth and hiring leads to continuous need for explanation/education

lesson objectives
Lesson Objectives
  • Define learning expectations for each unit in the course.
  • Each course has defined LO shared among all sections.
  • LOs ‘standardize’ multiple section courses
  • Students use LO as a study guide.

course goals
Course Goals
  • Defined as the critical educational components of the course
    • “At the end of this course, you will be able to…”
  • Content related goals

Mapping outcomes across levels creates a coherent educational plan
  • Course Goals to Program Goals
  • Program Goals to IEE Goals
  • Not all major-specific courses and not all program goals will map to an IEE
  • Some IEE Goals satisfied by General Education Courses
