Writing Learning Outcomes

One of the most important steps in designing a course is formulating learning outcomes. This interactive tool was designed to help you carry out this step.

Based on Bloom’s taxonomy for cognitive development, this tool will guide you through writing overall learning outcomes for your course. Using the main tabs (GLO01, GLO02, etc.), you can write a general learning outcome and link it to specific learning outcomes appropriate for identifying the taxonomic level, and a corresponding verb. Once these steps are completed, you must write a learning statement that specifies the content that will be discussed.

Your work can be saved by clicking on “Submit”. The list you will receive can be either printed or saved as a PDF (see saving instructions at the end of your learning outcomes list).

Good luck!
