Mount Royal College's College-Wide Learning Outcomes Initiative Phase 3: Integrating, Teaching to and Assessing Skills-based Learning Outcomes (2000)

In 1997, Mount Royal College in Calgary, Alberta, launched an eight-year plan to integrate skills-based learning outcomes across the organization. In the third phase of the project, the college continued to find ways to support its instructors in the initiative.

The overall goal of the initiative is to help students to systematically develop their transferable skills, and equip them with the knowledge they need to make successful transitions to the workforce or to further education.

The objectives of the third phase include helping college instructors be more explicit about the knowledge and skill outcomes of their courses; assisting instructors in developing strategies to teach in ways that meet those outcomes; helping instructors continuously improve their teaching; and making assessment more systematic across the college.

Specific activities undertaken include the establishment of establishing advisory committees with membership drawn from industry and faculty; conducting workshops; creating a database of teaching and assessment methodologies and processes; and establishing a three-year instructional support program for new faculty.
