The following guidelines are provided to assist in the development of appropriate learning objectives for a proposed educational experience.

Step 1. Describe the information, skills, behaviors, or perspectives you will acquire through attendance and participation. 

Step 2. Clearly identify the outcomes or actions you expect to demonstrate as a result of the educational experiences. See the action words below.

Step 3. Write the learning objectives that relate to these outcomes and that reflect the content of the session. Objectives describe your behavior as the learner, and:

  • are stated clearly

  • define or describe an action

  • are measurable, in terms of time, space, amount, and/or frequency.
