Intended Learning Outcomes for Co-curricular Activities
Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane (AUI) strives to offer its students enrichment activities and programs to complement the classroom learning. These co-curricular activities are an integral part of their whole educational experience. Through a variety of programs and services, AUI endeavors to enhance campus life and provide opportunities for students to develop mentally, physically and socially.
In April 2017, the need to revise the Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) was identified. A Co-curricular ILOs Committee composed of six heads of units met for extensively to rethink the outcomes and to update methods to assess students learning and development through the programs and services.
Three domains have been establish for the 2017-2018 academic year with the committee to continue its work to establish domains, specific outcomes, and means of assessment.
For a learning and assessment focused co-curriculum the first three domains are diversity, leadership and autonomy.
