Faculty Workshop: Developing Program-Level Learning Objectives

Why should academic programs and departments develop learning objectives for their majors, minors, certificates, and other programs? Developing program-level learning objectives will allow academic units to identify what they want their students to learn and guide faculty in what and how to teach. 

During this workshop, you will:

-Reflect on and describe factors that influence student learning
 across the program or unit   

-Identify what students who complete your program should
 know, value, and be able to do

-Develop program-level learning objectives that encompass

The intended audience for this workshop is chairs/program directors, those on curriculum committees, and anyone who wants to more deeply understand their program’s curriculum.
