Designing Effective Learning Objectives
As part of the Georgia Tech Remote Teaching Academy for faculty, members of the Center for Teaching and Learning faculty created a variety of short videos on key topics related to remote teaching. All of the videos can be found on the Remote Teaching Academy Canvas site. We will highlight the videos in this series of posts over the next few weeks as well. Visit the CTL Keep Teaching site for extensive resources for teaching remotely. CTL faculty are also available to talk, answer questions, and think through pedagogical approaches with you. Request a chat here.
Learning objectives are the compass by which your course stays true. LOs should guide everything in the course from content to learning activities to assessments. In this video, CTL’s Dr. Carol Subino Sullivan, Assistant Director of Faculty Initiatives, explains the role of LOs in a course, qualities of strong and measurable LOs, and ways to plan your course around your LOs.
