I just got back from the Lilly Conference on College Teaching. The first workshop I went to was on course design. One chunk of this was on learning goals. This came in the second half of the workshop, after we’d talked quite a bit about learning factors, etc. I chose to work on my 200-level Biophysics class, where I thought I had decent goals already. One of the ones I particularly liked was
Use simple physical models to provide quantitative insight into biological systems.
