Learning Objectives and Course Goals

Have you ever wondered what content sticks with your students after they complete your course? How much do they retain after five years? How about after ten years? Did they remember the main idea?

Standard II of the Peer Review process looks at some of the over-arching ideas that are essential in explaining the value of your course outside of the classroom setting. Join us on Monday, March 31st at 9 AM for our second installment of Thru the Lens. Tell other faculty about this unique chance to walk through two of your colleagues’ courses.

We will be looking at Marnie Chapman’s Biology 112:Human Anatomy and Physiology II, AND Maren Haavig’s Accounting 379: Fund and Governmental Accounting through the lens of Peer Review Standard II. Join us to see:

Peer Review Through the Lens

  • Different ways faculty use their syllabus to establish the course goals and clearly state class priorities.
  • Measurable course objectives written from a student’s view
  • Different ways to capture a student’s attention and focus it on the learning objectives
  • Ways faculty create clear and concise statements or checklists for assignments and due dates

Monday, March 31 at 9 AM we will use Collaborate  to meet so you can participate from your office or home. Please use the link shown, look for the “Tools Box” and click on “Participate Now” to attend. After joining the Collaborate session you will be given the information to log into each of the courses that we’ll be reviewing. Please have a headset with you so you participate by voice as well as text throughout the hour. If you have never done a Collaborate session before you might want to try logging in prior to the session to make sure you are ready at 9 am.

We hope you will join us for this session. It is a great way to see what other faculty are doing, share ideas, provide feedback and to gain more understanding of the peer review process and rubric. Mark your calendar today to reserve the date and time. We’ll post more information soon.  

Thank you Marnie and Maren for opening up your courses for this mini-peer review session!
