Instructors use learning objectives to design, develop, implement, and assess instruction. During the design and development phases, instructors transform the course topics into clear, observable learning objectives. After defining the learning objectives, instructors use them as guides for instructional strategies and developing learning activities. Instructors use learning objectives to communicate their expectations to students. Instructors also use learning objectives to create student assessments.
