Learning outcomes help us identify and clarify the end point or destination of a learning experience. If we don’t know where we are going, we can get lost or wander all over the place. A course then becomes a bloated unorganized mess.
We use Fink’s Taxonomy for Significant Learning to create observable and measurable course learning outcomes.
This resource from the teaching center at the University of Buffalo provides a discussion of the taxonomy and how to use it to write your course outcomes.
