Constructive Alignment - Program Program Learning Outcomes CPR Courses Learning Outcomes (Biggs, 2010)
Writing An Outcome Step 1. Choose a verb that describes the level of learning you intend. Step 2. State the content the student will be considering. Step 3. State what the student will be able to do as a result. Do What, With What, For What

Chemistry- Students will apply quantitative principles to effectively describe the nature of chemical reactions. Chemistry- Students will implement and analyze a Kastle-Meyer test to determine the presence of blood. Course Program Class “We help our students formulate problems or tasks, and they solve or execute them in their own way, individually, in teams…” Institution Granularity General Specific Province“Depth and Breadth of Knowledge” “Application of Knowledge” Chemistry- Students will evaluate the nature of chemical reactions to determine secondary substances.

Learning Outcome Tips
Describe the outcome not the activity. ReconsiderBetter Students will write a paper on societal advantages of sustainability in regard to biological systems. Students will adopt a sustainability perspective to maintain future biological systems.
Focus on students’ learning outcomes, not instruction. ReconsiderBetter Students will learn about Tversky and Kahneman’s theories of cognitive bias. Students will evaluate Tversky and Kahneman’s theories of cognitive bias to predict human decision making behaviours.
Avoid jargon. ReconsiderBetter Students will identify metacognitive cues to effectively self-regulate their learning. Students will identify academic challenges to improve their choice of study strategies.
