Learning Objectives: We're Doing it Wrong?
I'd like to know people's thoughts/suggestions regarding effective learning objectives.
I'm currently reading Michael Allen's Designing Successful E-Learning, in which the author is very critical of LOs following "50-year-old models". Consider the following:
"a straightjacket that strips away any sense of build and wonder, almost guaranteed to bore more than enlighten. What other form of presentation would give the game away at the start? Would you go to the cinema and expect to hear the objectives of the film before you start? It's time we moved on from this old and now dated theory using what we've learnt about the brain and the clever use of media."
Maybe for comparison and discussion, you could provide some interesting examples of what you consider to be good and bad learning objectives...
