Program/Department Learner Outcome StatementsFor all those progressing through program review, there is a new emphasis on program/department learner outcome statements. A one-page description of strategies for developing these learner outcome statements is being distributed to current program review teams and will also be included here in iDevelop. Attached is the first strategy including using college mission, vision, and value statements as well as the Master Academic Plan as a basis for developing these learner outcome statements. Enjoy! For more information about learner outcome statements, contact Cate Kaluzny.
