Come join a discussion on science and math learning goals.
DePauw's science and math division has begun a discussion regarding STEM general education learning goals. We'll discuss this paper as it relates to ongoing conversations within the division. In this very brief paper the authors argue that learning goals help faculty develop courses and assessments, facilitate discussion about teaching and learning with their colleagues, and help students know what they need to know. The paper also provides a practical suggestions for writing learning goals.
