What’s a learning goal and How do I write one – Ayanna Perry PhD
This session will support you in thinking about why drafting learning goals are useful for teaching. These learning goals include a content and process learning focus. We will examine a detailed learning goal and reflect on how it informs lesson planning, task selection, and formative assessment. Then participants will take time to develop their own leaning goals, reflect on how it can positively impact their teaching and determine a first step to developing specific learning goals.
