Module Objectives (MOs)

  • Module Objectives are what the student should know at the end of each module.  
  • Activities have been created to assess how well students are meeting the Module Objectives.
  • Module Objectives for each module are found in your Canvas course on the Module Overview and Objectives page.
  • Module Objectives build throughout the term to support Learning Outcomes.

Learning Outcomes (LOs)

  • Learning Outcomes are what the student should be able to do by the end of the course.
  • MOs are stepping stones to LOs.  It is important to check-in on students and their progress toward both MOs and LOs.
  • Learning Outcomes are included in your course syllabus. 
  • Learning Outcomes for individual classes are aligned with overall Program Outcomes

Program Objectives (POs)

RCTLE Teaching Tip

  • Intentional conversations about learning objectives lead to increased engagement and can help the students know what is required and expected of them.
  • Create small talk around LOs and MOs.
  • Engage with students through questions or stories.
  • If teaching in an online environment where the course is predesigned for you, give feedback on student learning to the course creators.
