Workshop Outcomes ● Learning Outcome 1: Workshop attendees will discuss strategies for incorporating open online learning objects, such as the New Literacies Alliance lessons, into their instruction. ● Learning Outcome 2: Workshop attendees will map learning outcomes from the NLA lessons to the curriculum of one class, workshop, or department with which they work. ● Learning Outcome 3: Workshop attendees will create an action plan for modifying and augmenting an existing instruction session(s) using online learning objects.
  3. 3. Action Plan! ★ Identify a teaching opportunity (e.g. a course/program, a one-time instruction session, an undergraduate workshop) at your institution in which you would like to try using an NLA lesson. ★ What are your learning goals for the course, workshop, etc.? make a copy of the “NLA Action Plan” document!
