Instruction Toolkit: Teaching with Learning Outcomes

Test

Using Learning Outcomes in Your Teaching

The IRS Instruction Subgroup identified the following learning outcomes as key skills that students at MIT should master:

  • The student is able to determine the scope and types of the information needed.
  • The student accesses information effectively and efficiently.
  • The student evaluates information and its sources critically.
  • The student understands many of the economic, legal, ethical and social issues surrounding the use of information.

This page is designed to help you incorporate these learning goals into your own teaching. Some activities might address more than 1 learning goal, and are listed accordingly.
