1 CHSS WRITING LEARNING OUTCOMES WORKSHOP INTRODUCTION John Lowrey Dean of Undergraduate Studies

2 CHSS WRITING LEARNING OUTCOMES WORKSHOP A lot of recent work in CHSS has involved some discussion of learning outcomes and an acknowledgement that we need to engage with the idea of learning outcomes more thoroughly than we have done hitherto Alongside that, learning outcomes have also featured in initiatives coming from senatus level work, e.g. in CSPC Much of the discussion so far has been of a bureaucratic nature, both within CUGLAT and in most of the events held around PCIM Exception was most recent briefing on enhanced course descriptor, which was essentially a theoretical discussion on learning outcomes Today, opportunity to combine the practical and the theoretical in a workshop

3 CHSS WRITING LEARNING OUTCOMES WORKSHOP CHSS Course approval process Listed learning outcomes Statement on formative feedback Requirement to link/map learning outcomes to assessment Programme level assessment plan Aim is to devolve all responsibility for course approval to schools, using robust approval mechanisms and strong Boards of Studies

4 CHSS WRITING LEARNING OUTCOMES WORKSHOP CHSS work on courses/programmes Greater focus on relationship between course and programme LEAF/TESTA initiative is examining courses and assessment in much greater detail Programme Pathways Project will provide greater flexibility and greater clarity in student pathways but needs very strong course information

5 CHSS WRITING LEARNING OUTCOMES WORKSHOP PCIM & Enhanced Course Descriptor April deadline for ‘tidy up’ of DRPS, which includes recasting all existing courses to give them listed learning outcomes (maximum 5) Essentially a bureaucratic process – at this point Possibility that some courses might take the opportunity to do something more ambitious, which would require full approval

10 CHSS WRITING LEARNING OUTCOMES WORKSHOP PCIM and Course Approval New ‘CCAM’ takes on board CHSS course approval system but will supersede it Only the Programme Assessment Plan cannot be accommodated CHSS will therefore postpone that aspect of course approval Phase 2 of PCIM (‘Programme’) will deal with that Key aspect of that will be concerned with the relationship between course level learning outcomes and programme level outcomes

11 CHSS WRITING LEARNING OUTCOMES WORKSHOP Moving Forward Pragmatic focus is currently on April deadline New courses will have the opportunity to think about assessment and learning outcomes to a much greater extent than most of us have done in the past Online guidance is already starting to appear in the new system………
