Application and Impact of Learning Outcomes on Institutional Cooperation, Accreditation and Assessment – A German Case

The aim of describing degree programmes, modules and courses in the terminology of learning outcomes (LO) is to help make degree programmes more skills- and career-oriented, to facilitate the accreditation of extra-university knowledge and skills and to increase student mobility.

Be that as it may, how can learning outcomes contribute in practice towards achieving these objectives? In the scope of the HE_LEO project, we examined the impact and benefit of learning outcomes at the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg.
