Using Learning Outcomes to Determine Essential Content

Presented by

Kathy Telban, Chief Executive Manager, The Learning Organization

About this talk

One of the major concerns regarding outcome-based curriculum design models is that subject-focused content is somewhat lost. Curriculum design isn’t just a process of deciding what topics to cover. It’s a process of deciding what essential content learners must understand and master in order to achieve the intended learning outcomes. In fact, analyzing the intended learning outcomes to determine the essential content is one of the important marks of a strong curriculum and supports deeper learning. It should answer the question: What concepts, skills and issues are essential for the learners to achieve the intended learning outcomes? This webinar will provide a framework and process to identify, delimit, and align essential content with learning outcomes which will cause deeper learning and save time. Join Kathy Telban of the Learning Organization for this exciting discussion! Kathy Telban is an expert in outcome-based curriculum development. She served as the Director of Curriculum and Assessment at Cuyahoga Community College and currently is the Chief Executive Manager of The Learning Organization which is committed to helping college. and workplace educators create and improve a learning outcome and assessment system through leadership, instructor involvement, professional development, and system integration.
