Education Learning Outcomes

Our Department-wide learning outcomes describe what you should know as well as be able to do once you complete a program or course; many of these outcomes are demonstrable skills that are important to being an effective teacher. Through lecture-based courses, practical teaching experiences, and in-class placements, you will work with faculty members and your colleagues to develop and demonstrate these outcomes.
