Planning for Outcomes

In this professional development video from Getting Results, natural resource technology instructors at a community college discuss fitting their courses together. The instructors say that clarifying and communicating outcomes helps them plan courses. They can reinforce skills taught across the program and add additional ones, too. Students talk about how much they appreciate the hands-on, workplace-centered nature of the learning in their program. The video concludes with instructors talking about the goal of teaching skills that are highly relevant to the work world. Building curriculum, they say, is about envisioning and getting these results. The video runs 8:02 and is accompanied by a background essay and discussion questions. Users who sign up for a free account can save the resource and download the video as well.
