Design of the CourseCourse Goals:
The goals for each course are used to describe what students should be able to do after they've completed your course. Your goals may range from content knowledge they should master, to skills in which they should be proficient, to changes in attitude you wish to foster.

Course goals are most useful if they are concrete, have measurable outcomes, and provide clear direction for the course. It is helpful to phrase your goals as Students will be able to ... or I want students to be able to...

Example goals:
In a geologic hazards course, one of the goals is to enable students to research and evaluate news reports of a natural disaster and to communicate their analyses to someone else.

For a course in physical geology, students will be able to integrate different types of data (e.g. topographic maps, geologic maps, cross-sections, stratigraphic columns, photographs, diagrams and/or tables and figures) to reconstruct scenarios that reflect the internal and/or surficial processes that create the widely varying landscapes that we see today and to evaluate potential hazards associated with them.

In a historical geology course, when students are faced with a new piece of geologic information, they will be able to determine how we know this information and what the assumptions are in the analysis.
