Idea and initial proposal
Learning goals are crucial for higher education teaching, since they correlate highly with successful learning. My idea is to conduct a small survey about the courses offered at my department, and investigate how learning goals are designed, communicated and perceived.
The survey data is confidential, but you can have a look at the questions for lecturers and students:
The main findings of my survey are that there is a considerable mismatch between learning goals as intended by lecturers, and as perceived by students. Some lecturers are not effective at designing and/or designing learning goals.

After conducting my survey, I made a series of short videos about learning goals. My intention was to summarize in a very condensed way key information about learning goals.
