One of the cornerstones of effective information literacy assessment is having clearly-defined student learning outcomes. Learning outcomes specify what learners will know or be able to do as a result of a learning activity. Accrediting bodies often look for specific learning outcomes as one component of the review process. Most librarians have received little –or no- training in writing learning outcomes. This workshop will provide an overview of learning outcomes, their role in assessment and how to write them. Participants are encouraged to come with an instruction session or class for which they want to write or refine learning outcomes.
