Understand what students are learning

Heather J. Hether, Associate Professor of Teaching Communication, explains how clarifying and communicating her goals for student learning supports students and provides her valuable and actionable information about student achievement in her courses.

Curious Aggies

We care about undergraduate students' learning!

Curious Aggies is a student-led research initiative that encourages students to share their experiences as learners in order to include students’ voices in conversations about how their learning is assessed. We believe that student-led research is important because it ensures that data about students is analyzed by students. Student-led research makes it possible for undergraduates to contribute to create change that will benefit our learning.

Articulate Goals for Student Learning

What do you expect students to learn? Articulate goals and outcomes for student learning 

The process of developing learning outcomes invites faculty to reflect on, and then translate, that embodied disciplinary knowledge into clear expectations for students in their majors. We wouldn't want to leave something as important as student learning and success to guesswork.
