Once you have created the learning outcomes, assignments, and homework for your course, you should write a course description that is based on those outcomes. Learning outcomes and the course description are not the same thing!
A course description provides a general overview of course content and fills in some of the blanks that learning outcomes don’t address. Although there can be some repetition, the course description is usually more lively and descriptive of what you will cover in the course in terms of topics.
Here is an example of a typical course description:
Drawing Studio 2: Foundation level studio course in the creation of drawings demonstrating an understanding of color in a variety of media. Building on skills you learned in Drawing Studio 1, you will continue to develop your basic rendering skills in representing illusionistic space while demonstrating your increasing understanding of color theory. You will experiment with a variety of tonal and color media including charcoal, conte and soft pastel on toned and textured papers. Technical concepts of accurate rendering, color mixing, convincing color representation, color theory and manipulation of media will be combined with the expressive aspects of drawing.
