Module 1: Creating a Community of Learners

Self-Assessment and Resources:

Summary of Module 2


The students' journey is the single most important consideration when teaching, and student success is greatly impacted by good planning.

When planning for outcomes:

  • You need to know specifically what the students should be able to do in the workplace and the certification standards for that industry.
  • You need to link your course goals with the larger program goals.
  • You need to plan your outcomes first and then plan activities that support the outcomes.
  • You need to write a course syllabus that focuses specifically on what the students should be able to do upon completion of the course.

Designing a course with outcomes in mind helps teachers plan with clear goals for themselves and their students.
