Student Employee Learning Outcomes Presentation and Workshop

Presenter: Brice Bleem, Residence Life

Description: Do you supervise student workers? Do you want your student workers to see the educational and professional value in their position? Come join the Residence Life Coordinator team to learn about writing learning outcomes for student workers. We will cover what a learning outcome is, how to effectively write them, the impact they can have, and options on how to use them effectively with student staff. We will also show you what we have done with learning outcomes in Residence Life to maximize the learning that takes place in all of our student positions.
