New Course: Designing Effective Intended Learning Outcomes

Simon infornt of the Taxonomy Wheels

 

I am delighted to be able to share with you the culmination of decades of course and programme design practice, as well as a career spent in academic development, with the release of this course. It represents a 10-hour self-paced course, which you are free to navigate however you choose. The course covers insights and practices that would normally be featured over two days worth of face-to-face workshops.

Well-designed courses require a solid foundation of well-structured intended learning outcomes that enable course designers to develop robust, enduring and flexible assessments, and responsive and relevant learning and teaching activities.

This course is aimed at supporting faculty charged with designing or redesigning courses. We are going to explore the structure of effective learning outcomes using a full range of educational taxonomies. We will cover not just intellectual skills, but values, manual, and interpersonal skills too.

The course is largely self-paced but there is an opportunity for you to submit draft outcomes for me to provide feedback on if you choose.

The course, Designing Effective Intended Learning Outcomes, is available for individuals or for institutions to embed within their academic development programmes. Institutions are invited to contact me here please.

I look forward to working to support you in creating the best possible learning experiences for your students.

  • The course is intended for new and experienced faculty who are designing or redesigning courses for the first time, and who want to ensure their course design is built on solid foundations.
  • If you are to fully engage with the materials, activities and assignments, you can expect to spend between 10-11 hours on this course.
  • The course includes the opportunity, entirely voluntarily, for you to share your draft intended learning outcomes for me to review and provide you with feedback.
  • The course is based on nearly 30 years worth of in-house and invited workshops run across the world with colleagues from tertiary institutions.
  • The free-form course does not restrict how you engage with the material, you are free to navigate your way through the course as you see fit.
  • You have access for two years after enrollment.
