If you attended Learning Futures Celebrating Teaching events last week, no doubt your brain is buzzing with all the information and ideas that were shared at each event. With topics around assessment, redesigning feedback, and the use of technology in our teaching practice, maybe you’re thinking about taking a look at your course learning outcomes to see if you can implement any of these strategies.

Develop is being created to house a range of easy to use, interactive tools that support learning and teaching here at Griffith. The first tool in the suite is the Course Learning Outcomes Builder. The Course Learning Outcomes Builder is an easy to use, interactive that will support you in writing learning outcomes that are clear and measurable. It provides you with feedback on your learning outcomes and allows you to share the learning outcomes with your colleagues. You can use the tool to develop a ‘Set’ of learning outcomes, that usually contain 2-5 learning outcomes for a course.
