Day Two – Some Pointers You will not design anything without learning to write learning outcomes They are the building blocks of the Bologna Process Tuning will mean nothing without understanding learning outcomes Competencies won’t be in the curriculum if you don’t write learning outcomes Specialities need learning outcomes What are national peculiarities? Why do they exist?
So what? We need to spend some more time on outcomes before we can move on We need to look at levels We need to look at components of a learning outcome
