As the education coordinator, I will first approach my subject matter as a system itself. I will design my materials first by identifying their purpose, then second their function and finally deriving the structure of the educational materials from the necessary functions. In developing educational materials, I will also want to familiarize myself with my students as I know that according to communication models they may interpret what I communicate differently than I intend due to how they “decode” (Nelson, Staggers, 2014).

Some of the skills included in CLOs are communication skills, information literacy, and reasoning skills.The CLA+ is a simple assessment that measures certain abilities: critical thinking skills, problem solving, scientific and quantitative reasoning, and writing.

I want to send them out into the world being able to realize their full potential and capable of thinking intensively and critically.
