Learning Objectives: Get Started


Whether we call them Objectives, Outcomes, Competencies, or Goals, we need to specify for our students what they can expect to learn from us. They describe not what the student will be doing, but where we want the student to go. Learning Objectives need to be defined clearly and made readily available. This kind of transparency, whether applied at the program level, the course level, the unit level, or even the activity level, significantly increases the likelihood that your students will succeed.

Module Objectives

After completing this module, you will be able to do the following:

  • Explain the difference between goals, objectives, outcomes, and competencies.
  • Verify that learning objectives match the level of the class.
  • Write clear and effective course-level learning objectives.
