Abstract:The workshop provides two perspectives in developing student learning outcomes (SLOs) for a project-based language learning (PBLL) course: (1) connecting with program, institutional, field, and societal learning expectations and (2) balancing between being aspirational and achievable (or general and specific). The workshop emphasizes the need and advantages for a PBLL course to support program, institutional, and liberal art essential outcomes. It encourages the language educations to cultivate students' intercultural competence, content/disciplinary knowledge and skills, and cognitive skills such as critical thinking and research skills, in addition to language proficiency. It differentiates a task from an SLO: How to use a task to inform SLO development and how to use an SLO to guide pedagogical task design.
