Developing the Passport Learning Outcomes and Proficiency Criteria, Human Society and the Individual


Thursday, June 29th, 2017

Chair of the Human Society and the Individual faculty team, Jonathan Carrier, will share information about the process for developing the Passport Learning Outcomes (PLOs) and their accompanying Proficiency Criteria (PC). You will learn how the team was able to find alignment across their institutions – where there was easy consensus and where they had to work through the differences. This information should provide a good background for understanding the role of the PC and leading discussions on your campus about determining the congruence of your institution’s/state’s learning outcomes with the PLOs.
