Undertaking any curriculum change activity (e.g., course change, major change, etc.) should initially include a conversation about how learning outcomes are demonstrated or measured in your courses and degree programs. Learning goals by major can be found on the Program Goals and Reports page.
When beginning the process of assessing one’s courses and/or major, we recommend faculty consider every curriculum change through the lens of their major’s learning outcomes or, put another way, ask “what is being asked of students to learn or what do you want them to get out of their journey through your program?” Faculty can take advantage of the Assessment Subcommittee and its supports by contacting the Assessment Subcommittee chair or the Academic Success Director Jessica LaGrange.
We also encourage faculty to utilize the Course Quality: Best Practices and Resources which provides information, tips, and helpful resources on how faculty can provide enhanced teaching supports and foster innovative teaching practices. As always, the Hub for Teaching & Learning Resources is available to assist faculty in their curriculum development efforts.
