Successful Educational Programs: Well-written Learning Objectives Tied to Achievement Measured Through Effective Evaluation
One of the most challenging tasks for workshop presenters, instructors of continuing education and credit classes and CMP administrators is ascertaining that learning objectives are valid and robust. Then taking a critical or evaluative look at whether the programming provided achieved the desired learning objectives. During this webinar we will first explore what learning objectives are, what they must include and how to create them. We will also distinguish learning objectives from instructor objectives, a common source of confusion for presenters and administrators.
The second portion of our program will consider how we measure our success. How do we build evaluation tools that link with the learning objectives and help us identify what was successful or what might need to be tweaked in the future. Examining both ends of an educational programming will allow us to better determine if there was a successful transfer of knowledge to participants.
