Goals

In the months and years after having finished a course, a student should be able to DO things in the discipline that he/she couldn’t do before taking the course. Careful thought should go into what you want to enable your students to do, what value the course will add to their lives, and how the course will develop their skills and abilities. This is your opportunity to share the various goals that you have for your students. These goals range from content knowledge they should master, skills in which they should be proficient, as well as changes in attitude you wish to foster.

Content goals
Please DO:

  • enter the goals as a list
  • use the format "Students should be able to…"
  • focus on the main goals of the course
  • emphasize higher order thinking skills (analyze, predict, synthesize, interpret, evaluate, formulate), rather than lower order thinking skills (recognize, describe, define, identify, list, explain). A well-constructed goal involving higher order thinking skills has lower order skills embedded in it.

Please DO NOT enter a list of content items.

Please DO NOT use vague and difficult-to-assess goals involving phrases such as "appreciate", "understand", "be exposed to", "see the value in", "know about", "learn about".

Skills Goals

You may also have goals related to general skills in the context of your course. These might include goals involving improving skills such as

  • student writing
  • quantitative abilities
  • critical analysis of web sites
  • peer-teaching
  • oral communication
  • accessing and critically reading literature
  • working in groups

Attitudinal Goals

You may also have goals related to student attitude. These might include goals such as

  • building students’ confidence in course- or discipline-related abilities
  • developing students’ sense of stewardship of the Earth
  • improving students’ sense of healthy skepticism
  • increasing student excitement/personal wonder about learning about sustainability
  • improving students’ awareness of the issues of ethics in sustainability
