What role can student learning outcomes play in course planning?
In the process of BACKWARD PLANNING, we begin with student learning outcomes and use them to design activities, assignments and assessments that lead to the kinds of learning named in the SLOs.
Please read Chapter 11, which describes how to create a thread that links our assessments and learning activities to our SLOs (and short-term objectives). The chapter presents a comprehensive menu of assignments and teaching methods, however you will likely know of others that could be added to the list.
