Student Learning Outcomes: Barriers and Solutions for Faculty Development
Lightner, Robin; Benander, Ruth
Journal of Faculty Development, v24 n2 p34-39 May 2010
Student learning outcomes clarify the focus of a course. In creating student centered, concrete, measurable outcomes, the instructor creates a framework for coherent, integrated course design. Faculty may be resistant to writing student learning outcomes because of lack of time, teaching philosophy, job descriptions, assessment pressure and skills. In this paper, we discuss the resistance we have experienced from our seminars and workshops, and we propose solutions to address these concerns.
