Workshop Powerpoint: Setting Course Goals.pdf
A profhacker post about presenting course goals, activities and assessments graphically. There are several examples on that post. This is something Amy and I have used in the past to demonstrate to students how a course is organized and linking to the learning goals.
I also promised to show you how to find the “official” GCSU outcomes for a course. I use the term official lightly here because I know that some of these goals are likely out-of-date and don’t reflect the actual goals faculty and departments use. These goals can be updated by department chairs, so changing them might be simple. The hard part is agreeing on a common set of goals for a course.
The goals are stored in the University Profile System. To get to your course follow these instructions:
- Go to this link: http://info.gcsu.edu/intranet/Academicassessment/univ_profile.htm
- Select Viewing
- To find a particular course, select Course Information
- You can list courses by College, Department, Discipline, or Faculty – selecting faculty is a good way to see all the course you are SACS approved to teach
- Click on the Course Number
