Use the ABCD Learning Objectives Model to write an effective learning objective.
Have you ever been asked to teach a class, or develop a training program?
If so, how do you know where to start?
How should you structure your class? How can you make sure that your training program is suitable for your audience? And, how do you ensure that your students finish with the right knowledge and skills?
This is where the ABCD Learning Objectives Model is useful. This model outlines four things that you need to think about to create a thorough and complete learning objective; and this learning objective lays the foundations of a successful training session or learning experience.
