GUIDELINES FOR DEVELOPING EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

AT LEAST THREE educational objectives are requested for all presentations.  Not only are they required by our accrediting agency, but they also help us maintain a high quality educational program.

 

Educational objectives are statements which communicate instructional content.  They are used to emphasize the most important student outcomes of the instructional material.  At our conferences, educational objectives also help the learner choose appropriate educational offerings to meet his/her individual learning needs.

 

They should describe the intended behavior to be attained by the conclusion of the program.  In general, they should state:

 

            1.          What the learner should be able to do at the completion of the presentation.

            2.         Under what conditions (if any) you want the learner to be able to do it.

            3.         How well it must be done (if applicable).

 

They should be specific, clear, capable of being measured, concise and realistic for the learning time and level.

EXAMPLES: At the completion of this program the participants will be able to:

 

            1.          List the advantages, problems and safety factors related to MAOI drugs

            2.         Review various treatments of agitation in the elderly with dementia,

                        including treatment limitations and expected side effects.

            3.         Summarize new information on the psychopharmacological treatment of depression.

 

When formulating educational objectives, do not use verbs that are open to multiple interpretations such as learn, know, tell, understand, enjoy, appreciate, believe and perceive.  The following list of verbs will help you write observable, active, measurable behaviors when formulating educational objectives.
