What is the Value of Course-Specific Learning Goals?
Simon, Beth; Taylor, Jared
Journal of College Science Teaching, v39 n2 p52-57 Nov 2009
The authors examined student and faculty opinions regarding the use of detailed learning goals in three courses. Students reported the use of learning goals to be positive, aiding them with studying, in lectures, and in determining the important material to learn. Likewise, faculty indicated that using learning goals was a positive experience, especially for communicating course material to students and other faculty and for creating course assessments. (Contains 2 tables and 3 figures.)
