Objective Overruled

Monday, July 14, 2014 - 10:00am


If you are still finding yourself writing learning objectives that contain the words “understand” or “know,” then object to those objectives and invest an hour honing your objective writing skills!

A well –written set of learning objectives is crucial for a course to succeed. How can we teach something if we don’t know what we want the outcome to be? Learning objectives should clearly state the specific knowledge, skills or attitude that is desired as well as the learning method involved and the criteria for achievement.

We will explore the ABCD and CAS methods (among others) of developing learning objectives, discuss writing objectives for performance-based courses vs. information based courses and touch on the role Bloom’s taxonomy plays when developing your objectives.
