Learning Objectives for Education

Discussion: Writing Learning Outcomes and Learning Objectives for Education Consider that learning outcomes inform us of where learners are going, while learning objectives tell us how they will get there as we return to our weekend hiking trip analogy. You have arrived at the trailhead and are ready to begin your hike to the summit of the mountain where you know there will be a stunning view of the lake below. What is involved with getting to your destination? First you have to know how to read a trail map. You have been using maps since you were a child, so that part is easy. However, there is a steep, rocky section near the top, so you will need to use some technical climbing skills to get past that part of the trail.

The domains of learning are similar to the considerations a hiker must take when figuring out how they will get to their destination. While learning involves some degree of memorization, there is much more to the process that just building a database of facts within our heads. We apply various modes of thinking, practice skills that require motor coordination, and develop emotions and attitudes about learning. These aspects of learning are explained by the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains of learning, respectively. Thus, when developing learning outcomes and objectives as a nurse educator, you must consider all of the domains of learning to provide a complete picture of how you will address a learning outcome or objective. For this discussion, you will analyze the anatomy of a learning objective with respect to the domains of learning and practice writing a learning outcome and learning objectives based on the learning needs you identified in last week’s gap analysis. To prepare: Review the Resources and media related to the Domains of Learning within Bloom’s Taxonomy, the anatomy of an objective, and the differences between outcomes and objectives. Based on the gap/learning needs you identified in Part 1 of the Module 3 Assignment, consider how you will write one learning outcome and three (3) learning objectives that address the three domains of learning for the gap or learning need you identified. Review and use the Educational Plan Template you previously used for your Part 1 of the Module 3 Assignment to guide your discussion. By Day 3 of Week 6 Post a brief description of the gap you identified in Week 5 that will serve as the basis for your learning outcome. Then, for your chosen gap, create one (1) learning outcome and one (1) learning objective at the lowest level of each of the three domains of learning. In other words, you will write one learning outcome and a total of three (3) learning objectives that address the outcome. Read a selection of your colleagues’ responses. Note: For this Discussion, you are required to complete your initial post before you will be able to view and respond to your colleagues’ postings. Begin by clicking on the “Post to Discussion Question” link and then select “Create Thread” to complete your initial post. Remember, once you click on Submit, you cannot delete or edit your own posts, and you cannot post anonymously. Please check your post carefully before clicking on Submit! By Day 6 of Week 6 Respond to at least two of your colleagues on two different days by determining the following: Whether the outcome addresses the stated learning gap; if it does not appropriately address the learning gap, rewrite the outcome to address the gap or learning need. Whether the objectives address the stated domain; if the objective does not address the stated domain, identify the domain that it addresses as written and rewrite the objective for the stated domain.
