Recap of MOQI Webinar Learning Objectives: What, Why, Where & How
What was updated in the post: Added Webinar Summary and Bloom’s Taxonomy Action Verbs handout (click Webinar Summary for document).
Awesome webinar provided yesterday through MOQI. Beth McMahon and Robin O’Callaghan presented on Learning Objectives over the lunch hour. Effective use of action-based facilitation, Beth designed the session to include a substantial amount of interaction which increased engagement and reduced the temptation to multi-task. It was great to see other SCSU representation at the event, Dr. Kate Mooney and Dr. Kristin Portz were also in attendance.
What: Learning Objectives form the foundation of the course and provide students with your expectations of what needs to be done to meet the objectives. They also create a bridge to align course materials, instructional activities, and assessments.
Why: Learning objectives help both the student and instructor.
How: Use ABCDs of writing learning objectives when creating learning objectives.
Where: Put your learning objectives in a number of places throughout your course to help connect the dots for your students.
“Using learning objectives helps guide and direct students creating a state of expectations and avoiding leaving them in a state of wonder,” (Beth McMahon, 2017).
If you missed this webinar, don’t worry it will be offered again next semester.
