Writing Effective Learning Objectives

At some point or other, almost all of us in higher education have had to write learning objectives, whether they are for course descriptions, accreditation, or a lesson plan. However, these short, seemingly simple objectives often cause anxiety and frustration because most of us are not ever formally taught how to write clear effective learning objectives even though their importance is touted in higher education classrooms and digital badging programs.

In this session, we will explore some of the following questions:

- What is an LO? 

- What makes an effective learning objective? 

- How can action verbs be learning objectives’ best friends? 

- What is the different between a learning objective and a course objective? 

- How can backwards course design help me write stronger learning objectives? 

- Why should we share learning objectives with our students/participants?

This session is for faculty writing learning objectives for courses, faculty and staff seeking assistance with writing learning objectives for current and prospective badging programs, TTaDA sessions, and any educational program being offered by a UND office.
