General Studies Renovation Taskforce

Task Force Charge

(August 2018)

The task force is charged with revisiting and re-imagining the currently articulated student learning outcomes (SLOs) so that they align more closely and effectively with what faculty believe students should learn in the General Studies courses taught and with the approved University Learning Outcomes. The GRT will lead the faculty in facilitated conversations to

  • Identify meaningful and measurable SLOs appropriate to the current GS categories and aligned with the purpose of GS courses;
  • Develop appropriate rubrics to assess the extent to which students have learned/gained competencies in these SLOs;
  • Pilot SLOs and their assessment, then tweak as needed and implement across campus;
  • Develop a communication plan and collaborate with appropriate campus units to ensure everyone on campus knows what is going on and can engage in this important conversation.
