It is sound educational practice to design subjects and courses so that there is a logical connection between the learning outcomes, learning activities and methods of assessment. Section 1.4 of the Higher Education Standards Framework 2015 requires that, ‘The specified learning outcomes for each course of study are specified, consistent with the level and field of education of the qualification awarded, and informed by national and international comparators’.
Participation in this workshop will provide an opportunity to develop your understanding of how to develop learning outcomes to express what students will be able to know and do as a result of learning in the degree they are studying.
By participating in this workshop participants will be able to:1. Describe the connection between course learning outcomes and subject learning outcomes2. Describe how course learning outcomes influence course and subject design (including assessment of student learning, design of learning activities and resources)3. Evaluate ways of mapping subject and course learning outcomes to each other and to external reference such as the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), and professional accreditation or discipline standards4. Critique sample learning outcomes5. Write subject and course learning outcomes that meet TEQSA Guidelines, address the AQF and draw on sound pedagogical knowledge.
