Learners will describe why it is important to focus on the expected outcomes when developing or revising courses.This clip shows how beginning with the end in mind--a quote from Stephen Covey--translates to instructional design, and more specifically, to evaluations and the creation and revision of learning objectives.
- Begin with the end in mind.…You've probably heard this before,…or seen it quoted on a poster.…It's a great phrase.…It's from a book by Stephen Covey called…The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.…So how does beginning with the end in mind help you?…When you think of a course or lesson,…think of the expected outcome.…Often, we think of what we'll be doing…during the lesson.…The how, the what, the materials needed.…But if you take a step back and look at…the bigger picture, ask yourself,…"What's the goal here?…"What's the expected outcome?…"What will my learners gain from this experience?"…When you consider these questions,…you're looking beyond your course and…envisioning what they outcome should be…for your learners.…
