[ORDER SOLUTION] The Art of Crafting Meaningful Learning Objectives

Discussion: The Art of Crafting Meaningful, Measurable Learning Objectives and Learning Outcomes What is a learning objective? What is a learning outcome? While often used interchangeably, these two terms are quite different. Consider this example for clues to those differences. Suppose that you are developing a nursing course on evidence-based practice. A learning outcome might set the goal of utilizing evidence to provide safe, cost-effective patient care. An objective for such an outcome could be locating scholarly literature pertaining to improving care. In this Discussion, you will further investigate the relationship between learning outcomes and learning objectives and develop both types of objectives for a scenario.

You will remain in the same group and respond from the perspective of your Discussion group setting. To Prepare: Reflect on the Learning Resources in Weeks 6 and 7. Pay specific attention to alignment between learning activities and learning objectives. Review the media program in this week’s Learning Resources to examine effective approaches to writing meaningful, measurable learning objectives. Review the following scenarios and select the one scenario that would apply most directly to your Discussion group setting. A: Home Care or Public Health Agency You are a home care nurse in a public health setting and are developing a learning experience for new staff nurses on providing wound care education to their patient population. B: College or University You are a nursing faculty member at a university and are developing a new course for an introduction to medical-surgical nursing. C: Medical/Health Center You are a diabetes educator in a hospital and are developing a learning experience for newly diagnosed diabetic adult patients who need to understand their insulin needs and how to handle an insulin syringe. D: Other Setting (Clinic, etc.) You are a nurse for an outpatient clinic and are developing a learning experience for patients receiving the flu vaccine. To guide your development of your Discussion post, consider the following questions: What is the overarching learning need illustrated in the scenario? How could this overarching need be expressed in one or more learning outcomes? What learning needs to be addressed in order to achieve those outcomes? What meaningful learning objectives could you develop to represent the learning needs you have identified? How could you use the learning objectives to create an educational, learner-centered activity designed to meet the objectives? How can you use the learning objectives to measure whether learning has taken place? Using your answers to the previous questions, for your scenario, develop two learning outcomes, two learning objectives aligned to those outcomes, and a learning activity keyed to the objectives applicable to the scenario. Posting Directions: When creating your post, use the title: “Learning activity for Scenario _____.” By Day 3 of Week 7 In your Group Discussion area, post the following: Describe the 2 learning outcomes, 2 learning objectives, and 1 learning activity that you developed for the scenario for your Discussion group setting. Explain the differences between learning outcomes and learning objectives. Explain how the learning outcomes and learning objectives for your activity adhere to these differences. Explain how these differences would impact other learning in your Discussion group setting. Use the Learning Resources and/or the best available evidence from current literature to support your post. Read a selection of your colleagues’ responses. By Day 6 of Week 7 Respond to colleagues in your Discussion group on two different days by critically appraising colleagues’ learning outcomes, learning objectives, and activity. Offer additional or alternative learning outcomes and/or learning objectives for the specific activity and explain your reasoning with support from the Learning Resources and/or the best available evidence from current literature. 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!
