Lunch/Workshop: Writing a Student-Friendly Version of Your Outcomes

Friday, January 05 2018
@ 12:00 PM- 1:00 PM

Can students and prospective students read your program outcomes and understand what your program offers them? Many departments write their program-level outcomes for a faculty and administrative audience, with an eye towards assessment. However, discipline-specific vocabulary and writing style may leave students and prospective students struggling to understand what a major in your program offers.

Additionally, well-crafted outcomes language could help raise student interest in your program. This workshop will help you create a version of your program outcomes that communicates to students and is an appropriate length to add to your department webpage—your primary communications vehicle.

Lunch included.
