This is the first in a three part series on Peer Coaching for Program Learning Outcomes Assessment Planning.  Peer coaching professional development opportunity for Learning Outcome Coordinating Council and Learning Outcome Assessment Team members as well as other MDC staff and faculty who serve as resources in assessment planning.  Participants will practice coaching faculty on how to design effective program assessment plans for programs and disciplines.  The "coaching" role is intended to promote discussion and sharing about teaching, learning and assessment practices, to promote collegiality and support around the Learning Outcomes Initiative and to help facilitate good assessment practice.
This coaching role is voluntary, with the coach providing constructive feedback and recommendations based on her or his experiences with the MDC Learning Outcomes Initiative. This role is not part of any formal evaluative system at the College; rather it's a strategy to share in dialogues and to reflect on (and improve) program learning outcomes assessment plans.



As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  •  Compose appropriate student learning outcome statements
  •  Explain the differences between course competencies, program outcomes, and college outcomes
  •  Contrast levels of student learning outcomes
  •  Apply S.M.A.R.T. criteria to outcome statements
