Learning Objectives: A Key to Better Teaching

  • Online

The goal of this course is to teach instructors how to craft learning objectives. First, we'll explore the importance of writing learning objectives. Then, we'll examine the components of a properly written learning objective, and apply that knowledge as we evaluate learning objectives. Next, you'll try your hand at writing two learning objectives and then apply Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives to the objectives you developed.
