Defining Measurable and Meaningful Learning Outcomes at the Program, Course, and Unit Levels
Our way to ensure measurable and meaningful student learning outcomes across a higher education program is for the faculty to work together. We utilize backward design in a collaborative process that ensures all program outcomes are addressed.
Identify any specific gaps in current SLOs (alignment with Program SLOs or lack of measurability).
Apply backward design principles to program, course, and unit learning outcomes.
Develop an initial plan for collaborative SLO development.
