Robert Talbert recently “flipped” a calculus course and found that instructionally sound learning objectives are key, “A clear set of learning objectives is at the heart of any successful learning experience, and it’s an essential ingredient for self-regulated learning since self-regulating learners have a clear set of criteria against which to judge their learning progress” (The Chronicle, 2014).
In Robert’s article he highlights a three step process to create instructionally sound learning objectives for a “flipped” course, however these principals can be beneficial in any instructional situation.
To learn more about creating instructionally sound learning objectives or how they can be used in your situation, please contact the Fisher ITS Helpdesk.
