Course

Collaborative Design

Collaborative Design is a course focused on inquiry-based learning in a project-based environment. Student teams will learn to work together creatively, in a hands-on environment, with emerging technologies to design innovative products or services. The course aims to teach design thinking as an approach that can be used to consider issues and resolve problems more broadly, and promote self-directed learning that can be applied inside and outside the classroom.

SOLO Taxonomy

The SOLO (Structure of Observed Learning Outcomes) Taxonomy Rubric is a rubric designed by Serve-Learn-Sustain to assess Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) developed to assess sustainability knowledge. The rubric can be adapted to assess any of the nine SLOs that instructors can use when partnering with SLS for their affiliated courses. 

This rubric is intended to be adaptable for each instructor’s use. Most projects or assignments will utilize three or four SLOs at most. Choose the SLOs that are most pertinent to your assignments or projects when utilizing this rubric.
