Step 1: Determine the GE Category (Foundation, Explorations, Capstone) for which you would like to develop your course.
Step 2: The GE Essential Skills associated with your GE category may be predetermined. Choose between two to three of these skills that best capture the goals of your course. The Assessment of GE Skills grid informs you of the Associated Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) for each GE essential Skill. For each GE Essential Skill chosen as a primary emphasis, the associated Student Learning Outcomes should be detailed in the Standard Course Outline.
