Curriculum Writing

Course Outline

“While each required course element must be written discreetly, each element should also be developed in light of the other elements, in other words, integrated.  For example, there is an interwoven relationship between what the student should be able to do (course objectives) and how this is going to be evaluated (methods of evaluation). Furthermore the objectives must have a clear relationship to the subject or content. The course outline of record should reflect a quality in the course sufficient to attain the objectives.”

From “The Course Outline of Record: A Curriculum Reference Guide,” The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges, 2008
