Presentation Transcript


Welcome

  • Welcome to “Getting Results”

  • A National Science Foundation project developed by WGBH with the League for Innovation and 13 community colleges from across the U.S.


Getting Acquainted

Working with a partner:

  • Introduce yourself to a colleague.

  • Describe the courses you teach.


“Getting Results” Goals

  • To impact teaching and learning in ATE and STEM programs

  • To impact teaching and learning in community colleges


Module 2

Planning for Outcomes


Module 2

Intended Outcome

  • As a result of this module, you should be able to envision students in the jobs for which they are preparing. You should be able to design courses that help them learn the skills, issues, and concepts they will need to succeed.


“Planning for Outcomes”

Watch the video: http://www.league.org/gettingresults/web/module2/introduction/planning_outcomes_video.html

  • What are the primary factors these teachers have taken into consideration when planning their courses?

  • How does planning alongside other teachers contribute to a coherent curriculum?


Thinking About Planning

When thinking about planning for outcomes, you need to consider:

• The current demands of industry and any certification standards

• How you can link your course goals with the larger program goals


Thinking About Planning

When thinking about planning for outcomes, you need to consider:

• How you can plan your course based on the intended outcomes

• How you can create lessons that will lead the students toward the desired outcome


“Preparing for Industry”

Watch the video:

http://www.league.org/gettingresults/web/module2/thinking/preparing_video.html

How do these teachers structure their classes to prepare students for future careers?


Aligning with Program Outcomes

  • It is important to align your course outcomes with those of your department or degree program.

  • Check with your department chair to see what program standards exist for your course and how you need to incorporate them into your class.


“Integrating Disciplines in Project-Based Learning”

Watch the video: http://www.league.org/gettingresults/web/module2/thinking/integrating_disciplines_video.html#

  • How do the instructors in this video plan an integrated project with the outcome in mind?


Developing Learning Outcomes

Effective learning outcomes must:

  • Have an action word that describes what the student will do differently as a result of your course

  • Describe meaningful learning


Developing Learning Outcomes

Effective learning outcomes must:

  • Be measured/verified i.e., you can measure students’ ability to achieve them

  • Represent high levels of thinking, rather than trivial tasks

  • Be written in plain language students can understand


Writing Your Syllabus

  • The final step in planning your course, once you have written your outcomes, created assessment tasks, and planned learning experiences, is to write the course syllabus.


Writing Your Syllabus

Syllabi typically fall into one of three frameworks:

  • Content-focused

  • Competency-focused

  • Outcomes-focused


Writing Your Syllabus

Visit the following link to see sample syllabi: http://www.league.org/gettingresults/web/module2/learning/writing_syllabus.html

  • Look at the examples of a content-focused syllabus and an outcomes-focused syllabus.

  • How would the information in the syllabus guide your thinking and understanding of what would happen in the class?


Looking Back

When planning for outcomes:

  • You need to know specifically what the students must be able to do in the workplace and the certification standards for that industry.


Looking Back

When planning for outcomes:

  • You need to link your course goals with the larger program goals.


Looking Back

When planning for outcomes:

  • You need to plan your outcomes first and then plan activities that support the outcomes.


Looking Back

When planning for outcomes:

  • You need to write a course syllabus that focuses specifically on what the students should be able to do upon completion of the course.
