Carnegie Mellon University
A simple 2-page guide with advice on articulating clear and learner-centered course objectives. Articulating learning objectives helps the instructor select and organize course content and determine appropriate assessments and instructional strategies. This in turn helps students direct their learning efforts appropriately and monitor their own progress.
