How do Learning Outcomes Connect to learning?


Why have Learning Outcomes?

  • Clarity, fairness

  • Increased student motivation

  • Relevant teaching methods/learning methods

  • Strategic and relevant assessment

  • Accessibility – AODA and accommodations

  • Intentional teaching

  • Better Learning

Tasks and Criteria

Adapted from Schofield M (2005) based on Biggs, J (2003)


Why have the GDLEs?

  • Ensure consistency across universities

  • Establish a common language

  • Set a basic threshold for quality

  • Potential for improved quality of learning

    • This requires more than learning outcomes

    • Process for enhancement


Examples

Higher Education:

  • evaluate educational theories and approaches, particularly as they relate to the cultural, political and institutional contexts of higher education.

    Masters Computer Science:

  • review and assess the applicability of project-related techniques


Examples

Masters Social Work:

  • formulate research questions, undertake research, and evaluate research outputs within the discipline, but also within an interdisciplinary context.  

    PhD Social Work:

  • competently conduct independent research using at least one research paradigm (mixed, qualitative, or quantitative).


Process Tool


Future

Curriculum Mapping

  • Demonstrate Alignment: Learning Outcomes, Assessments and Methods

  • Demonstrate learning outcomes have been met

  • International trends: UK, Australia, Bologna
