Location: Zoom   Zoom

Course Description

Note: This workshop is aimed for faculty who will be starting the one-to-one course development cycle for LSU Online (courses that are for fully online programs offered through LSU Online) at the LSU A&M campus; however, all faculty and graduate teaching assistants are welcome to register and attend. 

Alignment is the intentional connection between course outcomes, learning objectives, assessments, activities, and materials. Course alignment builds a strong cohesive framework; helps ensure that both you and your students have accurate expectations about what will be taught in your course; and that students are practicing and demonstrating the skills you want them to learn. Prior to attending the workshop, please watch the following Learn & Geaux video to get a preliminary overview of what will be covered in the workshop: Alignment (Length: 3:17).

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  1. Write measurable and observable course outcomes
  2. Deconstruct outcome into measurable and specific module learning objectives
  3. Align assessments to outcomes and objectives

Note: This workshop will run contingent on enrollment of five or more registrants. If a quorum of 5 hasn’t been established by 2 days prior to the session, we will cancel the workshop and notify registrants.
