A house is only as stable as the foundations that it is built upon. In the same way, the structure of an entire course, its role within its programme, the appropriateness of its assessment and, the suitability of its learning and teaching activities, all rely on well-structured Intended Learning Outcomes (or ILOs for short). Getting the blueprint of a course right at the outset will make a huge difference to both students and faculty. This course provides a solid foundation to enable you to write effective ILOs for your institutional and professional context. In doing so it will offer you a foundation for more meaningful assessment, and better structured and purposeful learning and teaching activities.
