Topic: Essential Learning Goals – Constructing learning goals that challenge, foster critical thinking, and prepare students to be successful global citizens.
- draw connections between your course and the essential learning outcomes
- write SCHMI course-level outcomes
On 06 Oct 17, participants in the second workshop in a five-part course design series, used the SCHMI model to write effective, measurable and inclusive learning outcomes for their courses.
NOTE: The concepts in this series will build over each workshop. The prezi will also evolve as we move through the series.
We began with a modified version of the DEAL reflection technique.
