During the 2012-2013 academic year, representatives from each department met to consider college-wide learning goals. The initial question was simple, bit very important: What skills and knowledge do we want all Emerson alumni to have? In essence, what do we want to make sure our students learn?
We started this task in a systematic way. Reviewing the research on learning goals of several national associations, including the American Association of Colleges and Universities, each department representative brought his or her department’s learning goals for the committee’s discussion. We found many departments shared common learning goals, which became the base of the first drafted college-wide learning goals. The committee also considered the mission of Emerson College, our strategic plan, and what makes Emerson the distinct, wonderful place it is.
The work of this special committee was subsequently included in the College’s work as part of the ACE Internationalization Lab, as ACE Subcommittee #3: Student Learning Outcomes. This committee is currently in the process of sequential feedback from departments, the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee, and Faculty Council. The committee will consider all faculty feedback and make revisions. Please note that college-wide learning goals are purposively broad so that each program can consider how they are more specifically related to them.
Emerson College graduates create, collaborate, communicate, critically think, and civically engage.
