Mar 17, 2012 Discussion with Christina about verbs for Learning Outcomes

On-going work on the Learning Outcomes led Lynne and Christina to suggest a concise selection of action verbs that would be useful to distinguish between the various levels.

Feb 26, 2012 from Lynne

Everyone, don't forget to start the LO's with an observable action verb as we do with the CEUs (Continuing Education Units). Don't use words like "understand, become aware of, appreciate" etc.

I was clarifying our tasks to write Learning Outcomes as I found some challenges with regards to how in-depth we should get and how to streamline consistency in how we each write our LOs. I shared with Patrick that perhaps it might be useful to agree on Learning Outcome terms we should use in each of our 3 levels.

I found this information from the [Abilene University] website which could be useful and would like to suggest we review this as a group...
