Course Description

Note: This workshop is aimed for faculty who will be starting 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 an observable course outcome
  2. Deconstruct outcome into measurable and specific module learning objectives
  3. Align assessments to outcomes and objectives
  4. Identify career skills that students could gain from your course
  5. Describe your unique course value

For faculty/staff outside of LSU A&M: To register, please use your @lsu.edu credentials (i.e., the credentials you use when you log into myLSU), not your campus email address.
