Learning objectives should clearly articulate the knowledge, skills and abilities that can be achieved by participants by completing the learning activities/program. The learning objectives should be worded to describe the “take-aways” for the participant (i.e., what should they be able to do or what ability should they have upon completion of the activity/program). The objectives should not be worded in what the instructor or program developed plans to tell the participant about the course topic.
The following are examples of learning objectives that clearly specify the learning outcome.
