How do I create informative Learning Outcomes?

    Each learning outcome should commence with an active verb selected from the approved list. Please be aware that the active verbs will be presented in either US or UK spelling, depending on the language preference you've chosen. Each point should succinctly describe an action the learner will accomplish upon successful completion of the course. Utilise a variety of these verbs to prevent repetition. Learning outcomes hold significant importance in pedagogical practices, especially in the realm of online learning. It is imperative that if a learning outcome is promised, the course content fulfils that promise. For instance, if a learning outcome states that the learner will define climate change, the course must incorporate the definition, and an assessment question should assess the learner's ability to provide this definition.
