Writing Learning Outcomes

You will be asked to provide six to eight learning outcomes in the Internship Approval Form.  Learning outcomes should be tangible, concrete objectives.  Consider the following acronym SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timely.

Are your learning outcomes specific?

How will you measure progress toward your learning outcomes?  

Are your goals achievable and realistic within the context of your internship?  It is difficult to "understand" a major concept in your field in 10 weeks.  What is a concrete skill or experience you can hope to achieve in a timely manner?

Having a hard time getting started?  Take a look at some of these strong action verbs.  This is a great way to help generate more specific objectives, rather than broad statements.
