Pukelis, Kestutis
Quality of Higher Education, v8 p38-73 2011
This article presents generalisations drawn from experience gained designing and renewing study programmes so that the use of learning outcomes became the underlying principle of curriculum organisation. Conceptions of a purpose (profile), aim and outcomes of a study programme are presented, their formulation requirements are discussed and examples of their formulations are given. The logic of designing study programmes on the basis of learning outcomes is discussed; the structure of learning outcomes and the links of its dimensions and parameters are analysed; possibilities for critical alignment of divided and grouped study programme outcomes, as well as examples and an analysis of links among components of a study programme, are presented; illustrative outcomes of study programme components, and criteria for assessment of their achievement, are provided; some problems related to allocation of study credits to learning outcomes are discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 34 footnotes.)
