Learning Outcomes

In 2012, SFU began working in earnest toward the development of a Learning Outcomes and Assessment Initiative (LOA) which would provide a framework for all SFU academic units to clearly identify and maintain learning outcomes at both the course and program level. The initiative has been controversial, with faculty members expressing a wide range of views. SFUFA has largely limited its comments on the LOA to matters of process and to insistence that any such initiative requires explicit provision of adequate infrastructure and must conform to existing policies regarding faculty workload and academic freedom, among other things.

These pages provide a number of resources for SFUFA members, any official statements of the SFUFA Executive Committee, and general updates on the LOA question.
