Great start Christina. You are ahead of the game with objectives. And they are well written performance based statements.

Christina, You are making good progress. Take a look at some of your classmate's portfolios to get ideas of how you can build yours out a bit. Look at how learning outcomes are defined by others, especially: Elizabeth's_Portfolio - Elizabeth has a separate section, and Maree_Michaud-Sacks_Portfolio_Page Maree includes Gagne's outcomes in "what will be learned section."

Love that learning map! -- RobertEkblaw 18:06, 26 October 2012 (EDT)

If I can assist you in responding to Jane's advice, your Learning Outcomes are not based on the Learning Outcomes as defined in the Gagne text. They are more similar to what is often called "intended outcomes," a general statement of what is desired from the course. They say great things, but their generality makes it difficult to build assessments, lessons, and tasks from them.

Your objectives are much better. The only concern I have is the use of "choose" in a couple of them. You don't state what they are choosing from, or the context in which the choice is occurring. That makes it difficult to accurately assess whether the students have achieved that objective or not.

I love the learning map! The accompanying text is very detailed, and clearly demonstrates how the prerequisites build upon each other, and lead to the successful achievement of the objectives. It looks like your more recent work is much closer to what Jane wants; just go back to the earlier work and view it through the viewpoint you now have -- I'm sure you'll get it all worked out.

Hi Christina,

Your design is developing very well. You have mastered the learning objectives. Your map is great, with fantastic details and a careful consideration of Gagne's 5 types of learning. I am not sure that the information matches the titles though prereq and supportive. Send me an email so we can discuss. Take a look at some of the other Right now you need to top heading describing the intent of the course. Before you jump into outcomes, just tell us what the course is about and why you are doing it. Please add a link to your course on your portfolio page.
