Describe your intended learning outcomes by using active verbs and stating the degree of accomplishment expected from students. Also state how students will demonstrate mastery of the material.
Select learning activities that give students opportunities to practice the skills and knowledge you expect them to demonstrate when you assess their learning.
For example, if your course requires a research paper, give students assignments that develop their online and library research skills; allow them to practice writing introductions, literature reviews, and conclusions; allow them to revise early drafts to incorporate instructor and peer feedback.
