What makes a learning goal significant?

More than likely, your dream goals describe different types of learning. For example, you might want your students to know certain things about your discipline and be able to apply ideas they learn to novel situations, but you might also want them to make connections between disparate content areas or value the role of your discipline in their lived experience.

Many scholars of course design argue that having a variety of types of learning goals in your course leads to more meaningful or significant learning experiences. Our goal here is to help you categorize your learning goals and also allow you to explore opportunities for including less familiar types of learning. With this aim, we'll first introduce you to Fink's Taxonomy of Significant Learning (Fink, 2013).
