Learning Outcomes

Fresh semester begins today. I begin it by learning new things. Or may be old things in a new way. For instance, I understand 'learning outcomes are not learning objectives'. Because
The learning outcomes approach recognises and encourages learner-centred learning.
That is from a document (pdf download) recommended to me; for assisting primarily 'academics with teaching and unit of study development commitments' in writing their 'learning outcome' in 'higher education courses'.

BTW, 'unit of study', in a language which address Chennai auto drivers as 'transport executives', means 'subject' (a la Thermodynamics).
