Effective (/əˈfektiv/) adjective: Successful in producing a desired or intended result.
Being an effective teacher means making sure your students' learning and experiences meet your intended goals, which starts with creating student-centered learning outcomes. Creating learning outcomes that are realistic and measurable are the foundation of instructional design, and can be challenging for all educators. We use Bloom's Taxonomy and also will introduce Fink's Taxonomy of significant learning to integrate affective outcomes such as motivation and interest.
Workshop participants are asked to bring learning outcomes related to a class or teaching experience they are or will be teaching, or hypothetically would teach. Participants will leave with revised learning outcomes, and practice writing effective learning outcomes as a skill for future teaching.
Learning outcomes are part of the Teaching-As-Research (TAR) process, and this workshop is highly recommended for those considering a Delta Internship.
