Session on how to write course learning outcomes – April 25

All UW-Madison courses are required to have course learning outcomes, which should be shared with students through course syllabi. To support these efforts, the Office of the Provost are offering the last in a series of brown bags on course learning outcomes. Department chairs, curriculum coordinators, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend.

Register now for the upcoming session on the following date. The session will be held in Grainger Hall, Room 5120 (Capitol Conference Room) Wednesday, April 25, noon – 1:15 PM.

Attendees will learn how to develop and write clear and measurable course learning outcomes. Course learning outcomes are statements about the knowledge and skills that students are expected to know, be able to do, or value by the end of the course. Instructors who teach the same course are especially encouraged to attend together to define common learning outcomes for the course.

On an ongoing basis, the Office of the Provost will work with individual departments, schools and colleges to assist with writing learning outcomes (course or program) or with assessment planning. If you are interested in setting up a consultation, please email Regina Lowery at
