What will students learn during this lesson? While a basic question that should be asked often, the process of creating simple “what will students learn” statements is often overlooked or ignored. Some call these statements objectives, or outcomes, or “I can” statements. Regardless of what they are called, they are essential for successful teaching. This webinar will discuss the role of teaching objectives in generating learning experiences and assessments that target student learning. Of particular focus will be writing observable and measurable outcomes to serve as a foundation for each lesson.
