Guidelines for Learning Objectives
Learning objectives must be observable and measurable. They should clearly describe the desired knowledge (cognitive), skills (psychomotor or mental), or attitude (affective) to be achieved by the learner as a result of attending the course. Objectives should include two elements: action and result. In other words, what action do you want participants to demonstrate and what result do you want to see from the demonstration. When identifying action words refer to higher level thinking words in Bloom's Taxonomy. Avoid the verbs know, understand, learn, appreciate, become aware of, and become familiar with. There should be at least one objective per hour of instruction. If one is proposing a workshop with seven hours of instruction then the proposal should include seven objectives.
Sample learning objectives
- List the 3 major reasons for employee attrition.
- Write a brief case study on employee engagement
- Summarize in writing one's thoughts on the term "success"
- Calculate the cost of the project one has designed.
- Design a flowchart for recruiting employees.
