Professor Krumme's class objectives cover 5 areas of work effort and resulting competencies. Different weight is given to these areas in his different classes; in addition, achieved-competency expectations differ between classes and students (based on class levels, student background and remaining years (credits) to graduation). Learning objectives and desired skill competencies have also been compiled as a "Learning Matrix".
In formulating learning objectives and expected outcomes for my classes, I have for some time followed Bloom's (et al.) taxonomy of learning objectives. Thus, I have been quite explicit about expecting understanding (comprehension) and ability to apply given concepts in lower-level courses (Geography 207) and higher learning and outcome levels only for relatively simple concepts, analytical tools and project tasks.
My upper-level courses, on the other hand, require more independent, critical and integrative thought processes and project tasks which go beyond the application of existing concepts to include concept critique and evaluation, as well as the modification and realignment of concepts for relatively independent conceptual frameworks.
