Ensuring good learning outcomes and assessment align
What is a good learning outcome? Why would we rewrite the ones we have already? Writing assessment tasks to align with learning outcomes can identify that the learning outcomes need to be rewritten. Maybe they are not at an adequate level to meet AQF standards. Maybe they are not measurable. Maybe they don’t align with the learning activities. This session looks at a new tool to ensure that course learning outcomes, subject learning outcomes, assessment and criteria all align while looking at the quality of the learning outcomes. Explore the answers to these questions, or bring your own. This workshop is an opportunity to work through what needs to be in a good learning outcome. Who: This session is for subject coordinators, course directors and moderators
