Resource - Writing Learning Objectives

Identifying unit learning objectives that are clear and measurable is often a difficult task for faculty and instructors. At the same time, scholarship and research show the importance of measurable learning objectives. Many best practices in teaching and learning, especially in online teaching and learning, state the importance of clear, measurable learning objectives.

The Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence at Penn State has a great collection of resources to help faculty develop learning objectives. The Synthesis Worksheet is especially useful to guide mapping unit outcomes, the cognitive task (based on Bloom's taxonomy), how the unit will be taught, and how student learning will be assessed.
