    Hi everyone .
    We kicked off the focus group and have developed a set of provisional
    objective themes:
    * Definitions and purpose for learning outcomes and -objectives
    dmT2BObM/edit> ,
    * Taxonomy and guidance, including verb tables, for developing
    learning outcomes
    QK4-Mu3s/edit> ,
    * Minimum Viable Outcomes, and defining core work role requirements
    ux-nkSTc/edit> ,
    * Interoperability for defining course and learning outcome structure
    4UoTNCCw/edit> .
    We will also be meeting on the first Monday of every month at 13h30 UTC.
    Please do join us, and please also contribute to the documents covering each
    of the themes linked above.
    Our initial objective for these themes is to collate a literature review to
    test these ideas, and the state of existing knowledge / capacity.
    You will find the meeting notes and links to group docs here:
    Thanks and regards

    Subject: Focus Group on Learning Outcomes
    Hi everyone .
    It’s taken a little time, but the proposed focus group on learning outcomes
    has started moving. We’re intending to hold a kickoff meeting to scope our
    objectives during the week of either 4 or 11 September, and we’d very much
    appreciate your joining us.
    For context: Learning Outcomes – Further material documentation/metadata for
    data curation in research should include learning outcomes which demonstrate
    data probity, attribution, and process, including differentiation based on
    discipline, data type, methodology, etc (e.g., quantitative vs qualitative;
    archaeology vs zoology; required restrictions).
    I’ve set up a doc with some initial information here:
    At the bottom of the doc is a provisional agenda and a “Doodle” for you to
    indicate your availability to meet. Please also include your contact details
    under “Collaborators” so we can include you in correspondence.
    Thanks and I look forward to meeting everyone
