Global Outcomes: A Working Definition
Many colleges in the Washington State Community and Technical College system refer to college-wide learning outcomes as “global outcomes.” Global outcomes are those outcomes all students are expected to achieve prior to or upon completion of their programs of study. Global outcomes are the core knowledge, skills and abilities needed to succeed in a world that demands flexibility and continuous learning. Some common global outcomes include; critical thinking, problem solving, writing, speaking, cultural literacy/competency, information literacy, and use of technology.
