Articulating Learning Outcomes for Faculty Development Workshops

    A key element in measuring the accomplishment of learning outcomes is the way we draw closure. I do quite a bit of work in faculty training – primarily focused on classroom teaching skills, and find that a great closure is in two simple questions:
    1.For you personally what two or three ideas, statements, principles, discussions, etc. from our sessions together have had the greatest impact on the way you understand your life and work as an educator? What do you remember most distinctly? Why do you think that these have been significant for you?
    2.Suggest at least one specific and practical way in which you might be able in the next few months to apply in the classroom one or more of the principles we have studied together. Write your practical step(s) on a piece of paper and have a friend read and countersign what you have written.
    Through these simple questions you can discover what exactly the participants have learned, and also challenge them to go beyond passive listening to active engagement.

    One of the faculty’s biggest areas of concern is the articulation of learning outcomes and the assessment of those outcomes. Does the student know what we want them to learn? How do we assess the student outcome to show student learning or change?
