Learning Objectives

Learning objectives are concise statements of what students will know, and be able to do with that knowledge, at the completion of your course. 


Learning objectives guide course design decisions (what content to cover, choice of learning activities, types of assessments) and also provide students clear goals on which to focus their learning efforts.

To schedule an individual consultation about creating or improving learning objectives for your class, contact DCAL.
