11 Developing goals

You now have a sense of some of the universal skills and attributes that you want to foster in your students throughout the course. However, these aren’t yet tailored specifically to your students and their current ability.



Download the Course Goals Template and use it in tandem with the Skills & Attributes Checklist. For each skill and attribute, identify some of the various qualities or abilities your learner will need to develop to master this skill. Next, use these skills and attributes to help develop three-five course goals that will be the central focus of the course.

Guiding Questions

  • What should your students be able to do after taking your course?
  • What skills or attributes should your students have after taking your course?
  • Which elements of the AACU value rubric best represent your course?
