Developing Learning Outcomes

Learning outcomes are direct statements that describe the essential knowledge and abilities that students should possess, and the depth of learning that is expected upon completion of a course or program. Students benefit from clearly articulated and assessed course-level learning outcomes, which are also the foundation for an effectively aligned and integrated curriculum.


We are available to consult with individual instructors who wish to write/review their course learning outcomes.

Should a department of faculty wish to review their curriculum for alignment and coherence, student learning outcomes across a program, sequencing and continuity, inquiry-based learning and the like, CTL’s curriculum experts are able to provide counsel to guide the process.

Invited Workshops

In addition to our regular CTL workshops (see Events), we are available to facilitate workshops for groups of instructors in a program or unit who are writing/reviewing learning outcomes.

Request a workshop or consultation service by filling out CTL's Request for Consultation Service Form.
