Description

"Drawing up learning outcomes that actually influence the curriculum requires a thoughtful, collaborative process. Beginning with an institutional priority to “develop core competencies … to enhance students’ pathways for success,” a student success administrator at Wheelock College worked closely with faculty throughout Spring 2011 and developed a comprehensive list of curricular and co-curricular outcomes for all first-year students. The use of a logic model was incredibly helpful in articulating to a wide range of stakeholders the specific rationale, strategies, and desired results of this project. After a brief discussion of the specific outcomes and process at Wheelock, participants in this workshop will draft and edit a “theory of change” logic model for learning outcome development on their home campuses. The goal of this workshop is to prepare participants with a strategy to kick-start this process with a department chair or senior administrator following the conference."
