Education has goals, purposes and objectives. A vital task in teaching is to know what they are and transform them into objectives for students. Without these, students may end up confused or frustrated.

This course will help you to set goals and plan each goal specifically for your class.

Learn how to set general goals using curriculum frameworks and guides. Use a compromise between the cognitive and behavioral approach when formulating more specific educational objectives.

Learn how to classify different degrees of generality or specificity in the cognitive, affective or psychomotor domains. This online course will teach you how to use your students as a source of instructional goals as well, and how important it is to practice multicultural education.

Enhance student learning by calling on a wide variety of resources for your goals. Create links between the curriculum goals and students’ prior experiences to help your plans to succeed.

This course will be of great interest to teachers and trainers who wish to improve their instructional planning and make the learning experience most beneficial for their students.
