Education Resources curriculum series: Choosing the right learning outcomes

Thanks to everyone who attended the first Education Resources and the Office of Faculty Affairs curriculum event this week. the team is presenting another Evidence-Based Teaching event in the series in October.

In the second workshop in this series, “Generating Measurable, Performance-Based Objectives” (Oct. 22), you’ll learn how to turn your learning outcomes into measurable, performance-based objectives.

In the third and final workshop in this series, “Designing Effective Assessment” (early 2020), you’ll learn how to select appropriate assessment strategies for different objectives and learning outcomes.

Bring your course syllabi and/or program goals and objectives; we’ll provide examples but applying what we discuss to your own curriculum is the best way to learn!

This workshop is part of the Evidence-Based Teaching (EBT) series hosted by Education Resources and the Office of Education and Faculty Affairs. This series, held every fourth Tuesday of the month, showcases topics of interest to the medical and health education community and is free and open to anyone at UND. Previous EBT sessions can be streamed from our website.

If you have any questions, would like more information, or would like to suggest a future meeting topic, please contact Adrienne Salentiny at
